Review:

Nothing works like practice. Whether it’s learning letters, numbers, working on a golf swing, or rehearsing an aria, practice is what it takes to master the task at hand. Mastery is accomplishment, and accomplishment is really fun. But in today’s world, instant gratification often trumps practice. Practice is repetitive; repetition is tedious. How do we convince the young ones that boring tasks can be beneficial treats?

Beginning with instructions for proper pencil holding, the Kumon workbooks offer fresh, airy and age appropriate pages of practice for writing and recognizing letters and numbers.
