AMAZING - Paying close and careful attention to what is being asked is a critical skill for school success. Plus, it helps improve problem solving and reduce frustration. Fun activities in this Following Directions workbook from the Get Ready! series include positional words, shapes, numbers, and colors. "Draw a triangle around the pear," and "Color the t-shirt purple" are more than simple commands. They help young minds think through steps and evaluate problems and possibilities. Learning to follow directions will build your child's confidence and help prepare him or her for school. With some reading help from you, combined with visual cues, your child can master "doing what it says." The slim 32-page size is handy for packing into totes, backpacks and luggage. With a little help from you, your child will enjoy hours of learning fun. Get an edge with the School Zone Advantage!
WORKBOOKS - Writing in workbook pages, as opposed to typing on a computer, can help kids to focus and to learn. Writing by hand fires up specific areas of a child's brain, improving a child's ability to not only remember what he or she learns but to think of new ideas.
RESULTS - Our learning materials have helped educate three generations of kids, creating lifelong learners, and the legacy continues. Digital content, flashcards, workbooks, readers, toys and games are all crafted through a child's eyes while integrating parent and teacher standards.
PREPARATION - Let us help you prepare your young child for the next grade level with our workbooks, flash cards, books and a Little Scholar Tablet. Keep kids "classroom ready" with these great supplemental learning tools and more!
AWARD WINNING - School Zone content has won The Parents' Choice Foundation Award, Tillywig Toy Awards, Brainchild Award, Family Choice Award, Mom's Choice Awards Honoring Excellence, Gold Star Toy Scholastic Parent and Child Award and many more.
School Zone Publishing - Nourishing Young Minds
OUR STORY: Almost 40 years ago, long-time educators James Hoffman, Ed.D., and his wife Joan Hoffman, M.A., began a retail supply outlet for teachers, then soon identified a need for at-home learning materials to help parents support and supplement their children's classroom instruction. School Zone Publishing fast emerged as the market leader in workbooks and flashcards for preschoolers through sixth graders.
School Zone remains family-owned, focused on excellence, responsive to customers, alert to emerging technology, and committed to the community. We continually update our products with new features and content, reflective of changing standards, evolving teaching methods, and overall best practices. As just one example, we update our workbook curriculum on an as-needed basis to address changing standards such as those presented by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and Common Core.
