Product Details: Summer Math Skills Sharpener is a series of 13 separate books (grades K-12) that review math concepts learned in the just completed school year. Consult your child's teacher if you have concerns about appropriate skill level, but generally, you order "Grade 1" if your child just completed grade 1. The books are compatible with national math standards to prepare students for the next level. Find out about the Summer Skills series including a grade-level overview and sample pages.

Customer Reviews: Local educators and tutors continue to identify the SummerSkills Sharpeners as a valuable resource to reinforce skills during the summer. Many families have found SummerSkills books fun and useful tools for summer math practice. SummerSkills Sharpeners are based on the National Curriculum Standards and are not designed to supplement any specific math curriculum.
