    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.

    No room for careless mistakes! Get your kid to pay attention!What I like about Kumon workbooks is that each page is very short, but also very challenging. My son is bright but has a short attention span, and is pretty careless with his work. When we first started this, he had meltdown after meltdown because he wanted to rush through it, and he would do it all incorrectly. The book is set up so that if the child does not read carefully, he or she cannot possibly get the answers right. Now that my son understands that, he’s been doing way better. I’m grateful because it’s been a very uphill battle to get him to do things carefully and not rush through his work. It was showing up on his report card, too. Now he’s developing a habit of reading fully, and making sure he understands the objectives of the activities. If you have a bright but careless child, I would highly recommend this workbook.

    My home schooler likes this a lotMy going -on -4th -grade -level daughter (we home school) likes this work book. She does one or two pages a day and she told me , ” I think this really is helping me with writing.” She uses kumon math workbooks (just started grade 4 in math after finishing grade 3) and I didn’t get kumon writing workbook for her in the past because 1- I didn’t think she need it 2- it might be too easy 3- it might be waste of money if it was mostly blank space with writing prompts only (She reads 5th grade level books and writes stories all the time). I was curious so I ordered grade 5 writing workbook. It was challenging for her on her own. It looked great with variety of exercises so I ordered grade 4. She loves it. She does it on her own, gets few wrong answers here and there which tells me this is the right level for her. It’s not what I thought it was- bunch of writing prompts to encourage kids who hate writing. It teaches grammar, sentence structure, reading comprehension, etc. I highly recommend it.

    Great practice for my 2nd grader!My son is 7 years old and in second grade. He needs extra practice in writing grammatically correct sentences. This workbook gives him the perfect amount of challenge. I also love how this book reiterates reading comprehension. He can’t just skim through the passages and answer the questions, he must fully comprehend what he is reading and be able to summarize what he read in order to answer correctly. I also enjoy how the child has to understand the definition of the vocabulary word in order to match it to the correct sentence. I use this workbook at home for extra practice. I would say this book would be relatively easy for a 4th grader. I would say this book is geared more towards 2nd-3rd graders. (Also note, Kumon seems to overestimate these books when selecting grade levels).

    Good but not greatWe liked the idea of progressive introduction to writing. However, for an exercise book about writing, we would expect the student to WRITE and not read. Some chapters are dedicated to finding the main topic where the child has to write fewer than 5 words around 6 times. Also the lessons about writing complete paragraphs are very limited. Overall a good method but with a lack of content and practice for the topic.

    WritingGood book.

  9. Marina

    Too confusing ! No instruction or explanation… Just busy work.Very confusing.The topics are actually easy for a fourth graders but the instructions are very confusing. There is also NO explanation. Ie. “Write the statement”. My son says, what’s the difference between a sentence and a statement ? There are no examples. He also feels like it is busy work. We just finished brain quest 4 and thought this would help with more writing practice, but so far, it is confusing busy work…. Even I don’t know what the instructions want and have to keep referring to the answer key at the end of the book.

  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.

It progresses into paragraphs and finally short stories. I do wish it more quickly went into story writing as we are ready for that. I may need to get the 5th grade book soon for my 4th grader.

  12. Amazon Customer

    Great book for summer!As a teacher, I worry about my kids regressing academically in the summer. I purchased this writing book for my son who is going into 4th grade. Love this workbook. It introduces 4th grade writing vocabulary and skills. It starts with comprehensive activities and by the end of the book, your kiddo will be able to write a 3 paragraph essay!

  13. Sindiful

    Does Exactly What We Needed It ToWe use this as as encouragement for my son to improve his writing. If he does two pages, then he gets an extra hour of game time. We’ve already seen improvement in his writing skills! Kumon has been a part of my sons life since he was a toddler. Always nice to have a reliable learning tool.

  14. Jodi

    Very HelpfulThis book is a great little writing companion. My sons learned a lot from it. Works well for home school.

    Really good exercises. Helpful in developing the writing processReally good exercises. Helpful in developing the writing process. My son gets frustrated that there is often not enough room for writing out his answers.

  22. Bosslady

    Excellent!I bought this for my daughter as review over the summer between 4th and 5th grade and I can see a big difference in her writing this year. It was very helpful for her. She excels in math and science but not so much in writing. Definitely worth the money.

    More afforable and very well organized material from Kumon!I saw this book in Beestar recommend list. I am very impressed with the quality and nice organization in the chapters. The books make the Kumon system more interesting to kids and the prices are more affordable. I sent my kids to Kumon classes locally but it got boring over time and the material was not stimulating their thinking skills rather than a lot of repetitions. Other resources were liked by my kids and their friends, such as Beestar is fun with more vivid problem solving questions and is convenient to Parent with the online access and about $30 for whole semester. I am glad my kids enjoyed work on this book so far as the additional material besides Beestar. It has the right amount of work and can self paced. I am hoping my kids will use them for a long period together with Beestar, and I hope Kumon will publish books for students of higher grades.

    Love kumon booksWe always use these books. Kumon is great my 9yr old is showing improvement and independence after three lessons!!! Will also buy the 5th grade books for summer time learning.

  62. Sahar

    Improved reading and application skillsBest Features: Quick exercises, fun to do, teaches reading and comprehension skillsWorst Features: NoneI really love the Kumon workbooks. I bought this for my son to improve his writing during the summer and he absolutely loves doing the activities in here. They are on par with what is being taught in school and great to reviewing the precious grade before starting new! For the kids who went into distant learning during COVID these were a godsend!

    Kumon WritingWriting grade 4 looks at developing statements, sentences, main ideas, topics, paragraphs and more. It looks more challenging than the grade 3 as should be expected.The book has 35 double page excerises and provides answers pages too.Colourful, attractive and well put together. USA Grade 4 is UK year 5 I think.This book is made up from a set of 6, grade 1-6 USA or Year 2-7 UK.This book doesn’t come with a certificate unlike it’s UK counterpart.This book worked well for my child who was able to complete the grade 3 book comfortably.

  69. Lis

    Not bad.Good for killing time. Some questions are bit confusing for kids to get the right sense of what it is asking. In this case, parents can look at the answer page and figure out.

  70. Jing

    writingIt feels too easy for my children, so I keep the second child in the future

  71. online shopper

    Try this, instead of going to Kumon school.Our daughter started to go Kumon school, just to find out that all they did was giving her pages from Kumon Workbooks. So we just purchased set of books from Amazon and started studying at home. The books are very well designed, so kids can improve their skills gradually.

  72. Priscila

    Good practiceIt’s simple and easy to do. It helps with confidence. I would say it’s a level grade 3 depending on child.

  76. Elena Nikolova

    Excellent BookMy daughter (8 years old) started using the book only recently, but I can say that the book is very well-structured. It starts with a gentle introduction (rewriting questions as statements, combining phrases into sentences, punctuation, etc) and builds up to planning and writing short essays. The work is divided into two pages per session. I found this workload very well measured. I can only recommend it, especially if you children have a problem with structuring well their writing or need more practice with writing in general.

  77. mamaz
