Author(s): Alan Horsfield

Tools for Teachers & Tutors | English

(NZ Years 4-5) Excel Basic Skills: Developing Your Thinking Skills Years 3-4 is the second in a series of three books which aims to develop more advanced thinking, problem-solving, literacy and numeracy in primary school children, for use at home or in the classroom. Each page comprises a self-contained page of activities which help develop a childÃÂâÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs ability to think laterally, organise, analyse, visualise and prepare themselves for the work they will encounter later at primary school. In this book your child will find: - 64 pages of challenging, self-contained activities covering skills in maths, vocabulary, problem solving, logic, visualisation, research and much more - Interesting and fun exercises and puzzles to challenge students with a special interest in thinking, interpreting and reasoning - Activities which can be completed at home or in the classroom - A lift-out answer section. Much of the work tends to be somewhat open-ended and in many cases there is more than one right answer - a concept that many children have difficulty with, at first. There are times when discussion with the child/class may be the only way to determine the legitimacy of a response. Others are early preparation for what the child will experience later in primary schooling. At the bottom of each page, you will find a reference to the type of skill used on that page.
