Are you getting your child ready for school? Or are you wondering what this school year will bring? Or are you already worried about the afterschool struggle with homework? Well, there's help for you! We have a collection especially geared for the needs of children and parents and school. The collection includes test prep guides, workbooks for math and English, and books on how to help your child succeed at school. The collection is called the Educational Resource Center.
Two series titles that introduce what content each grade is likely to cover are:
In the collection, we also have some very popular workbooks on various subjects by the publisher Spectrum. Some examples are the Math and Test workbooks:
We also have the Scholastic Explains Homework Series which is excellent to use in helping your child with particular subjects. There is the Scholastic Explains Writing Homework and the Scholastic Explains Reading Homework which explains English homework so well.
How to Help Your Child with Homework by Jeanne Schumm
and 20-minute Learning Connection by Douglas B. Reeves.
The last series that I would like to recommend to help children with reading is called Comprehension and Critical Thinking, a compendium of articles from Time for Kids. There are six titles in the series for grades 1-6.
