First grade is an important time for advancement and rapid learning. Kids will absorb a lot of information as they adjust to a more structured classroom environment. While this may sound a little daunting at first, there are plenty of opportunities to sharpen your child’s skills in an entertaining way to help them adjust to first grade. Workbooks are the perfect solution to supplement their classroom learning at home.
Practicing activities with your child — even just a few pages a night — can make a world of difference in their overall comprehension in class. And when their activities include stories, interactive experiments, and eye-catching images, practicing key skills becomes way more fun!
Sometimes, finding the right workbooks for your child’s individual needs can be a challenge during this crucial period in their development. Luckily, Scholastic editors have found that when laying the foundation for your first grader’s key skills that will serve them in first grade and beyond, these four workbooks used in tandem will address areas of social-emotional development, introduce them to STEM concepts, and advance their reading skills.
