Take It From Me: The Critical Thinking Co. (Review & Giveaway) CLOSED

The Critical Thinking Co. (Review & Giveaway) CLOSED

"If we teach children everything we know, their knowledge is limited to ours.  If we teach children to think, their knowledge is limitless." - Michael Baker, President
 The Critical Thinking Co. is a wonderful learning resource site with tons of tools and products to aid your child's confidence when it comes to learning.
 
The Critical Thinking Co. has recently released 2 titles, Editor in Chief Beginning 1 (Grades 2-3), and Mathematical Reasoning Middle School Supplement (Grades 7-9). I had the delightful opportunity to review the Editor in Chief Beginning 1 and found the 16 lessons in grammar and mechanics very useful. The lessons focus on one skill at a time, including capitalization, punctuation, nouns and pronouns and a lot more. What I liked about this book is after every 2 lessons there is a mini-review and after 4 lessons there is a compilation review.
Teaching Suggestions:
"Editor In Chief Beginning 1 can be used as an individual or group activity for instruction, reinforcement, practice, and assessment of English grammar and mechanics. When introducing a new rule, several paragraphs can serve as an instructional example, and others as an assessment of a student's independent understanding. The mini reviews and compilation reviews are designed to provide even more extensive opportunities to practice and reinforce the many skills developed throughout this book."
