Does anyone else think that the science and history books need reinforcement material? I feel that both subjects need ways to reinforce the topic being studied.
Unless I am missing something- it's read, discuss, answer the questions, maybe a demonstration (lab) and quiz. When do they practice what they have read? I haven’t seen any practice worksheets with new vocabulary terms or information. My children do not have photographic memories – so reading the information is a way to introduce the material but, when do they get to work with the information?
So, I guess what I am asking is, where is the reinforcement resources for the kids? The “Student- Quizzes, Test and Worksheets” booklet only have four actual worksheets. Am I missing something? I am satisfied with the math and grammar portion of the curriculum but not so much with the rest…
Question- in teaching reading where do the children learn specific things like personification, parts of a story, setting, plot, cause and effect? I am looking for these things but I am not finding them.
