Description & Features (from The Critical Thinking Co.)
Building Thinking Skills® provides highly effective verbal and nonverbal reasoning activities to improve your children's vocabulary, reading, writing, math, logic, and figural-spatial skills, as well as their visual and auditory processing. This exceptional series provides a solid foundation for academic excellence and success in any assessment.
(sample pages from the Primary Level book)
The activities are developmentally sequenced. Each skill (for example, classifying) is presented first in the semi-concrete figural-spatial form and then in the abstract verbal form. Children learn to analyze relationships between objects, between words, and between objects and words as they:
|Observe, recognize, and describe characteristics.|
|Distinguish similarities and differences.|
|Identify and complete sequences, classifications, and analogies.|
These processes help children develop superior thinking and communication skills that lead to deeper content learning in all subjects.
(sample pages from Level 1)
