These educational quizzes are designed to build your child’s confidence in the early years at elementary school. The quizzes teach the same subjects that children will be learning at school in the main subjects of English, Maths and Science. In addition, they provide a look into several other topics taught to 6 to 8 year olds.
There are four reasons why parents find the quizzes so valuable:
These early elementary years are when the foundations are laid for your child’s entire future education. Schooling relies upon building knowledge of subjects layer by layer and if a child gets behind in the early years it becomes increasingly difficult to catch-up later. For this reason, many educationalists believe that Grade 1 and Grade 2 provide the greatest opportunity for parents to have an impact on their children’s education.
The quizzes at this level reinforce the learning goals that are being taught in school and help children to become more familiar with the subjects and more comfortable with new ideas. In addition, the quizzes develop valuable learning skills such as concentration, careful reading and good comprehension. These new-found abilities help children develop a love of learning and a sense of pride in their own successes that will last them a lifetime.
It is at this stage in a child’s education that they will benefit most if they are lucky enough to have encouraging and enthusiastic parents. Young children are naturally inquisitive; they want to explore and discover and learn. If their learning brings pleasure or success, they will want to repeat the experience. Children who receive the right sort of support and encouragement during these early years will grow into creative, adventurous pupils. Motivating your child to want to study can be difficult but using fun and engaging learning tools will help make the process less of a chore.
Our suggestion is to spend between 10 and 30 minutes each day in a one-to-one situation with your child. Explore our site, play the quizzes, discuss the topics that arise and generally have fun learning. All the time you will be secure in the knowledge that you are reinforcing the very same subjects that your child is being taught in the elementary school classroom. Automatic recording of the dates when quizzes are played and the scores achieved will quickly highlight which subjects have been thoroughly mastered and where more work is required.
In our experience a little effort from parents in these formative years enables children to rise through the ranks to the coveted position at the top of the class and, once there, the children themselves will do everything they can to stay there for the rest of their school life!
Teachers recognise the huge significance of Grades 1 and 2 and consequently it has become a very specialist discipline. Our quizzes have been written by a group of teachers who are actively engaged in teaching 6 to 8 year olds and who understand the complexities and difficulties that confront children in this age group.
Emphasis is placed on visual content and the section is brought to life with the use of pictures wherever possible. Each quiz is made up of ten questions and supportive notes are provided at the end of each question.
These tailor-made quizzes are very affordable at only $12.50 per month and this provides access to the entire site for all the members of your family. You can cancel at any time, even during the first month, but we expect that once your child has completed the elementary quizzes he/she will want to progress to the higher grade quizzes in order to steal a march on classmates!
You will probably never find a more enjoyable way to engage with children’s education and at the same time you will help provide the best possible chance of success with their schooling. You can join here.
