Brain Quest Grade 1, revised 4th edition: 750 Questions and Answers to Challenge the Mind (Brain Quest Decks) Reviews
Using these as a supplement for homeschool for my held back due to age Kindergartner. He loves it. There are some occasional questions that I personally think are strange or out of place, but overall they are good age and grade appropriate questions, which as a homeschool helps me backfill some things and shows me where he could use some additional teaching. He asks to do these first before any of his other schoolwork, so I would say success.
My son really enjoys these flash cards. We were surprised at the seemingly incredible jump in complexity between the Kindergarten flash cards and these 1st grade flash cards--there are questions on these cards that I don't even know the answers to, and lots of complex sentence structure questions. No pictures at all, and they require the child to be able to read to answer many of the questions. I can highly recommend the Kindergarten ones--but these seem more difficult than 1st grade work.
So, I never wanted to be a flash card mom.....
We do 2 cards a night before bed and my kids love it. Some questions are really easy and some are more challenging. I will be buying the next level as soon as we finish this one. The kids really look forward to this as part of our bedtime routine.
We were first introduced to Brain Quest when I daughter turned 4 and we really like the brand. We picked up the 1st grade version of these cards this year because my daughter start 1st grade. These flash cards are great fun and educational, it is a great way to turn learning into a game. These are not huge so they are easy to take with you. We take them anytime we know there could be a wait, because they keep my daughter entertained and it is much better than giving her a phone to play with. I am sure that we will continue to get the next versions of these as my daughter masters the questions.
My daughter is 5 and in Kindergarten, and I bought the 1st grader version to challenge her. There are two decks included and each deck has two sets of questions and answers (once done with the first side, you can flip around and start from the back for another set of questions). She loves it, and she gets about 30% of the questions wrong, but we talk through it and I know I'll go through the deck again so she can retain the right answers.
As a retired first grade teacher, I relied on the Brain Quest questions to fill empty time spots during the day. The kids loved it. The questions range from fairly easy to harder ones that were a challenge. When my grandson went to kindergarten this year, I got him the K Brain Quest - it was too easy, so I gave him the 1st grade one. Perfect! I'm glad he doesn't know all of the answers because he doesn't lose interest.
I bought a set of first grade cards for my daughter who'd just finished kindergarten and the 4th grade set for my son. Much to my surprise, my younger child seemed to enjoy these more than my older one. She loved having my full attention with being asked questions and talking about their answers. She also really loved being able to show how much she knows as a kindy graduate! It really seemed to give her a sense of accomplishment to be able to answer so many of the questions. It was also handy for me, as a parent, heading into summer, to identify gaps in my child's knowledge. For instance, I now know that she needs work on coin identification, but generally really grasps mathematical concepts. These cards have proved to be an interesting common ground between my daughter and I as lovers of trivia.
