    Great book.Amazing book. After buying so many book I decided to purchade writing and reading book for my second grad son and I am working with him every day. He has improved a lot. He is reading faster. II wish they had more books for second grade.

    Great GuidanceEvery summer I buy workbooks for my two boys. This year I chose Kumon, I purchase the whole collection of Grade 4 for my son going into 4th grade and the whole collection of Grade 3 (thinking Grade 2 would be too easy) for my son going into 2nd grade. Later on I found that my younger son had difficulties in some areas in Grade 3 so I bought Grade 2.This has been a great guidance for my kids and I. The books helped my kids learn step by step and I really do see improvements. Its great for me, I simply use the answer sheet to correct and it helps me find out what their weaknesses are. Overall I really like Kumon workbooks compare to previous companies that I have purchased because I do see improvements. Next year I will purchase Kumon again.

    Definitely Not 2nd grade!Bought this for 1st grader (half way through the year) with SEVER adhd… thinking that while distracting, the colors and pictures and ‘fun’ of this book my capture her interest. It makes her excited to do worksheets… also the EXTREME ease of this entire workbook Also makes her excited because she can rush through them without ANY trouble. I like kumon, I love the price of kumon, the doodle likes this pictures and color… I know schools are all different and kids develop and learn and memorize at different speeds etc, but really there is zero challenge… purchased the 3rd grade (because I do REALLY love and trust kumon)… fingers crossed it will present some learning (instead of just reinforcement & practice) and even challenges.

    Very helpful handwriting tool!My son needed some quick review/practice to improve his handwriting. (He’s in second grade.) This book has been perfect. We do have a trading system in place (handwriting earns him screen time), but he doesn’t resist practicing, and he sees the results from the first page to now. There are grammar lessons embedded in the written work, and pages vary enough that it’s not too repetitive. Thank you, thank you!!!

  6. Cynthia

    Summer learningSon loves working on it once he gets started and can tell of improvement with his writing.

  7. Bryant Gutierrez

    Fun bookGreat reinforcement book for early elementary years

  8. rajesh kedar

    Nice way of exercising the writing skillsMy kids enjoying the books at the same time able to gain the knowledge of writing.

  9. Alena S

    It is like an activity bookI just got this book over the weekend. Asked my daughter to do 2 pages. She did and then asked if she could do 2 more! I think we’ll go through this book very fast. It is like an activity book, but with rhyming, vocabulary words, matching, and writing of course. It starts out simple enough to encourage the child to not get nervous about this book, and to want to proceed to the next page.

  10. Janelle Butler

    It is perfect for “filling in the gaps” for my sonI have ordered all the books in the 3rd and 4th grade series…math and reading/writing. After I ordered 2 books, I was so impressed that I wanted them all. It is perfect for “filling in the gaps” for my son. He can work at his own pace and continue learning throughout the summer. We are going to continue with these books throughout the school year. I would highly recommend these books to any parent who wants to help their child make major improvements in reading and math.

  11. Sindiful

    Perfect to hone in on those writing skills.My son is a lefty, and writing has always been a struggle. I’ve seen him write neat many times, but at school, he writes sloppy. He gets bored and writes too fast! This book was a great choice to hone in on those writing skills and improve the motor skills in his left hand. My son LOVES the book. It has a place for a grade on each page, and he gets excited when I give him a 100. He writes so neat with this book! Thank you Kumon Learning.

  12. Chau Edge

    It is a great way to enhance your child’s learningWe started out using Grade 2 material as the actual Kumon program measures and takes a similar approach. It ensures the child has full mastery of the basics. Our son motored through this quickly though given it is self paced. In the course of a year he has moved from Grade 2 to Grade 5. It is a great way to enhance your child’s learning.

  13. SmithMDW9711

    Good practice for 3rd grader who was falling behind in writing.I bought this for my 3rd grader to help with his writing skills, and it’s working well so far. The lessons are grouped so first they trace each word or phrase, and on the following page they write the same words on their own.

  14. Dudz

    Great but took very long to arriveBook was Great but delivery sucks. Took almost 2 months to arrive.

  15. Tu

    I ordered a new book but I got used book

  16. Blessedmomof3

    Kumon never disappoints!I homeschool my three children and have always used Kumon as a reinforcement for my lessons. My son is in K and we enjoy the lessons and ample practices that this book provides.

  17. LBZ

    Too easy for 2nd graderToo easy for 2nd grader, my son is first grader, already done these in Kumon BI, (first grade level), parent who wants to order this book need to think about 3rd grade or 4th grade writing book!

  19. HR

    Love these books for my kids!Kumon is amazing with how they set up the learning with their books, they review and then gradually work into the new topic and so my kids are never confused because its not just a basic worksheet book its an actual learning book and teaches you from step to step! Kumon you rock please keep coming up with new stuff because I absolutely love your books!!

  20. Mommy

    Excellent quality books!I love these books. They teach and reinforce what you’ve already learned in such an ingenius way. So much fun with bright colorful pages. The pages arent too busy though. We love kumon!

  21. MC

    Not the bestI don’t like that half of the workbook is done with a ghost answer written in already. I can see 1 or 2 per topic, but half of each page is too much. Feel cheated.

  22. Jsf1313

    Not what I neededI was searching for support material to help my child with his writing skills, I found this book more geared towards ESL students. Definitely not what I expected.

    Good book. I wish there were lessons in it …Good book. I wish there were lessons in it that practiced writing more than a sentence at a time. Other than that, excellent.

  26. Ashley Thomas

    Kids loving to learn!My son loves this workbook already!

  27. Brittney Burns

    Excellent!!Excellent!!! My son loves doing this book and its VERY close to what they learn in class with the way the instructions are. I think that he will be more confident in 2nd grade now that we are using this over the summer.

  28. gigi.chew

    Love the booksI have bought almost all my homeschoolers supplies through Barnes and nobles and when they don’t carry my grade level I need, I get it from Amazon! Love the books 🙂 I think they are on par with the actual grades they’ll need to learn the material by.

  29. Jay & Deb

    this is an excellent source for teaching writing fundamentalsAs an educator and parent, this is an excellent source for teaching writing fundamentals. I would recommend this book to both teachers and parents.

  30. Gxiong

    No writing practiceI don’t like how there’s no writing section for kids to write paragraphs or summary.

  31. crafty0710

    Great book, but kind of easy for grade 2Great book overall, covers a range of things, not boring, practical. But -1 star since it is kind of too easy, more like for first grade.

It’s difficult to find a workbook that teaches English the way my daughter’s elementary school does, but this does a wonderful job. Plus, my daughter thinks of them as fun, and less like homework. The pages themselves are fairly sturdy and made of good quality paper, so they’ll stand up to a good bit of erasing (perfect if you want to use this with another child). However, I found that my first grader was already covering what the grade 2 workbook had in it, so we’re using it as review this summer.

    Good book for reviewing worksAdvantage:The book covers many aspects. Good for reviewing on different topics.Disadvantage: too easy for some 2nd graders. Most of sections have tracing writhing which is way to easy. 2nd graders need more challenging works.

  71. Rupesh

    Good bookGood book for gr 2 student but it’s too much easy for them

  72. MrsPB

    Happy with a workbook at last!American book with American spelling and words, hence the 4 stars. Otherwise perfect to teach new words, grammar and spelling.In this book there are 36 lessons (they are on two pages and can be done in about 10 mins).You get vocabulary, pronouns, irregular plural nouns, verbs in present and past tense, irregular verbs, contractions, adjectives, subject and predicate, adverbs, punctuation, writing sentences and then stories.The pages are colourful and since the exercises are short and sweet, it’s easy to keep the children’s attention captive for those 10 minutes they work in the book. Mine are quite happy to work away by themselves with no or little help. In the back, you can find all the solutions, so needn’t worry if this subject is not your forte…

  73. Amazon Customer

    Great!My boy hated writing before. But he finished G1 and G2 less then 7months while I was homeschooling him(G1). Highly recommended! 😉

  74. Brittani

    Overly simple for grade twoAlthough the content is good for the grade level, essentially all of the answers are given for each lesson so it was not challenging for my daughter

  75. Le Thi Thu Hoa

    So simpleThe book is so simple for the grade 2.

  76. Ronan Hughes

    Good for basic learningThe kumon books are good for basic learning, however after a while I found the learning becomes very slow.Would recommend for basic learning but would not continue after stage 3.

  77. one_two_three

    Yet another KUMON bookI got this book for my twin 7yo daughters, who are currently in Year 2. This book supplements their school learning quite nicely. It is definitely not as challenging as KUMON’s mathematical books of the same grade and children can fairly easy do 2 pages per session.If your are willing to spend time and effort this is a good alternative to paying £70 per month per subject for attending KUMON training center.

  78. abg2008

    Very helpful workbookAs a homeschool mom and a tutor I use this workbook regularly to review and reinforce concepts with my students. Appreciate the layouts and clean pages and the systematic build to the level of the work.

    小5で取り組んでいますカラフルなイラストで単語をイメージさせるので日本人向けの教材よりいいと思います。日本人小学生向けより幼児向けな見ための紙面ですが、習う単語はjoy、noise、march、ache、destroy、scratch、anchor、cage、addition、invitation、vision、ridge、election他多数。arrive、freeze、offer、connect、listen、carry、hurry、bury、worry、spy,try、reply、marry、supply他多数が出てきます。日本の問題集より圧倒的に語彙が増えます。代名詞の所有格・目的格、this・thatの指示形容詞・指示代名詞としての使用、名詞のイレギュラーな複数形、不規則動詞、形容詞の比較級・最上級、主部と述部、副詞、句読法の?!「」.を正しくつける、空所に適切な形容詞を語群から選び短い話を完成させる、等の内容です。5回繰り返すためコピー代で700円余りかかりますが、本体とで1700円程です。日本の中学の教科書より実用的な良い文がたくさん載っています。質問文を含め、全文を音読するのがいいです。外に習いに行かず、家だけで小3秋から、英語の勉強をぼちぼち始めました。いつも母親が読む後について音読させているので、とても耳がよくなっているようです。字を見ず(見てね、と言いますが本人は面倒で見ないのです)母親の読みだけを耳で聞き、ついて言っています。そういうことをさせたかったので、英語圏のワークをしています。日本人向けのワークだと音読する部分が少なすぎるので。GRADE1の時は短く切らないとついて言えませんでしたが、今は初めての文でも7単語位なら平気で、おなじみの質問文だと10語以上でもシャドーイングしています。このシリーズのGRADE1のRとWもしました。先日英検5級を受けましたが、満点合格しました。英語圏のワークだけをしていて、5級問題をさせたら、リスニングは簡単に全問正解、リーディングはさっぱりわからない、という状態でした。それで、日本人向け中1ワークを3回繰り返しさせて試験に臨みました。英語圏のワークを音読もして取り組んでいれば、リスニング力はつきます。同時に取り組んでいるのは、日本人向け中2問題集と、scholastic社の、grammar2とdairy word ladders grades1-2です。もう少しでこのwriting2が終わるので、3に進む予定です。writing3と同時には中2問題集を引き続きと、scholastic社の、100words kids need to read by 2nd grade(繰り返さない)と240vocabulary words kids need to know grade2(3回繰り返し)をする予定です。英語に取り組み始めて2年と少しでやっと英検を受けました。満点近くで合格させて、英語が得意と思わせたかったのと、周りの子で英語教室や公文に行っている子達が小5の6月10月に5級を受けて合格しており、本人も受けてみたいかな、受けてみてもいいよと言ったのが12月だったので、1月の受検となりました。6月の4級でも合格可能性は高いと判定されていましたが、4級は小6の10月に、日本人向け中2の問題集が終わるので、受ける予定です。塾なしでも大丈夫です。
