It’s Fun to Be Smart!

 My mother was a teacher, so she had a gift for making learning fun. After school and especially on rainy weekend days, we’d do all sorts of enjoyable activities. I realize now that many of these activities were actually educational. But at the time, I just thought of them as “play.” And that’s how learning should feel.

I recently had the chance to review the new line of Pre-K through Grade 4  Brain Quest Workbooks. These colorful workbooks are jam packed with games, activities and exercises your kids will actually enjoy. The Brain Quest Workbooks reinforce what your kids are learning in school in an entertaining way with language that’s easy for kids (and parents) to understand.  There are even stickers at the back of the book to use as rewards.

As you prepare to send your kids back to school, now is the time to brush up on skills that might have gotten rusty over the summer.  For example, Brain Quest Workbook: Grade 3  includes a pull-out “Times Table” poster and lots of exercises to ensure your rising 4th Graders remember their fractions, decimals, mulitiplication and division. The exercises were designed by experts and teachers to be developmentally-appropriate, so you won’t need to worry about overwhelming your child.

Since preschools vary so widely in quality, the Brain Quest Workbook: Pre-K is a must-have for kindergarten readiness. The organized exercises will help your children learn their ABCs, 123s, shapes, colors and more. There’s even a colorful fold-out “Alphabet Letters” poster for your child’s room. If you have older children, they might enjoy playing teacher  and helping their younger sibling with the Pre-K exercises.

Brain Quest Workbooks are available for $10.36 at  Amazon  and at

  1. I cling on to listening to the news bulletin talk about getting free online grant applications so I have been looking around for the top site to get one. Could you advise me please, where could i get some?

  2. I simply wanted to thank you very much once more. I am not sure the things that I would’ve done in the absence of the entire creative concepts revealed by you relating to my situation. This was an absolute depressing difficulty for me personally, however , considering the specialised way you solved that made me to leap for gladness. I am happier for your support and then have high hopes you are aware of a great job that you are getting into training men and women using your website. Most likely you’ve never come across any of us.

  3. I arrived below to learn about one thing entirely different than exactly what I would. I like in order to absorb as a lot different data since practical, it is the best element about daily life. We include an internet site as well, click on the connection to come on by and find just what people are accessing.

  4. Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!

  5. Outstanding story. I agree with writer completely, especially last paragraph. Keep posting such good content.
