Develop analysis skills necessary for academic learning!

This program prepares your child for academic learning by developing essential organized analysis skills. These fun, engaging, hands-on activities focus on perceptual skills necessary for success in reading, writing, and mathematics.

This boxed set contains:

  • activity book with easy-to-follow, detailed instructions
  • geoboard and rubber bands
  • shape playing cards
  • geometric shape cards.

The reproducible, full-colour book can be photo-copied, or can be used over and over with many children if you do not have the child colour in it, but rather they can explain their answer and trace with their finger the lines or shapes to be coloured.
