I am a huge advocate for literacy and because of that, I’ve always looked for the best ways to help my boys develop strong reading skills. From alphabet flash cards to sight word activity sheets, I choose games and activities that combine fun and learning whenever I get the chance. So when I heard about Newmark Learning and its extensive line of books and other educational resources, I was excited to learn more about the company’s products.
I was given the chance to review an assortment of products, so I requested reading, math, science and social studies books at the Grade 1-2 level, Zackary’s current reading level at the time. The books were full colour and very appealing to both of my boys, but I really wanted to see how Zackary liked the content.
My son enjoyed the reading books featuring fun adaptations of favourite songs and rhymes including Old McDonald and The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe, but it was the science books that really captured Zackary’s attention. My oldest son has always been fascinated by science and nature, so he absolutely adored reading about natural disasters, weather and sound. And I appreciated the questions and discussion prompts at the end of the books that helped develop my son’s comprehension of the books and the descriptive language he needed to share what he had read.
