To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Design is good. It's helpful. But it's too costly. It's profiteering product. Cost is too higher than the benefit. This kind of products are available on Amazon itself at lower cost which I purchased already.
I was looking for a wipe clean book my son could reuse, and when I typed it in the My First Learb to Write Workbook was the first to pop up. It would have been perfect if it were what I was looking for.
Pros: this has a good number of pages and I like that it started with strokes and then letters. The paper is a nice thickness and not flimsy.
Cons: Only one uppercase A page and one lower case a page. So only one page per alphabet.
It’s good for the price especially if you don’t want to print these pages from the computer and collate and staple them. There are lots of resources you can get online from teachers pay teachers and the like that you will have to print.
Hint: cut up a sheet protector and lay it on top of the page your child is working on. Use a dry erase marker to write the page. You can erase with a Kleenex tissue. This will allow for many many more more practices.
Hint: try having your child write the straight letters first. Then the letter c and j. This will be a good foundation for forming the rest of the alphabets.
Overall it’s an ok workbook for tracing letters. However, some of the instructions on how to form the letters are obviously incorrect. An example is the W page. Nobody should write a W like that. So if you use this with your child be sure to pay attention and teach them the correct pencil strokes for each letter.
A bit pricey for the activities on this book but, over it's an OK book. The best parts of this workbook are the pre-handwriting illustrations which are great but very few, everything else is regular alphabet tracking illustrations which you can find in any dollar store activity book. The book is a regular size 8x11 and not very thick either. But overall OK, so not a total waste of money, I just wish there had been more pre-handwriting skills activities which would have made this book worth it.
We bought this to get our 3 year old ready for starting pre-school in the fall. It was really hard for him to want to engage and it wasn't entertaining enough. Writing practice became a battle he would get stressed out with not being able to complete the exercises because of his skill level. I recently purchased a different writing book “Writing The Alphabet With Animals by Jordan Bawa” I thought looked more fun and he is enjoying it much more! It's full of fun animals and puzzles.
It mostly consist of tracing and writing numbers and letters. There's only 1 page of tracing squiggly lines & shapes. I thought there would've been more. So I was slightly disappointed. I had my child do the page several different times, once with pencil and the other times with colored markers to practice.
