Kindergarten: Curious George Adventures in Learning
Curiosity leads to learning! Curious George Adventures in Learning is a researched series for early learners. It was designed by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, a global leader in education serving 60 million students worldwide. Each workbook features 12 new mini-stories that provide context for math, reading, and science practice. These stories give children authentic learning experiences that naturally inspire curiosity. Children are more motivated to ask, learn, and retain information when they learn through stories. In the Kindergarten workbook, your child will strengthen foundational skills in math, literacy, and science. Extend counting to 100, identify solid shapes, add and subtract within 10, and distinguish between upper- and lowercase letters.The workbooks also integrate social and emotional activities to support whole child development. And they're mapped to the Common Core, providing valuable reinforcement of the concepts they learn in school.
