The Critical Thinking Company- Balance Benders - Review


TOS Crew Review

Product: (48 Page Reproducible Workbook) Balance Benders™ Beginning Level (Grades 2 - 6)

Company: The Critical Thinking Co.

Price: $9.99

I am very familiar with the resources of Critical Thinking Company. They publish outstanding workbooks which teach excellent thinking skills to children, in a fun way.

Balance Benders contains Logic and Algebraic Reasoning Puzzles. It includes Puzzles, Balance Tips (Algebra concepts) and Solutions.

I sat down with John (12) and we did a few of these pages. He solved the puzzles very quickly and I was delighted with his ability to come up with correct answers. He is dyslexic, so I wasn't sure how he would handle this. However, he thought it was fun and easy! I was delighted!

My plan for John is to have him continue doing a few pages each day, working his way through the entire book.

If you are trying to help your children learn to take their time, concentrate, analyze and find solutions, this is a tremendous resource.
