Review: OLSAT Test Prep Level A

 When we finished out our kindergarten year I was trying to find a test prep for our daughter to take to that I knew she had retained the information given for the year. I could not find a single booklet to test for the end of the kindergarten year. This test prep book doesn’t focus on any specific subject but rather it assess cognitive abilities. Now if you are like me you have no idea what OLSAT (Otis-Lennon School Ability Test) means. We’ll have no fear the book gives great instructions on what and how to administer these test. You can use this workbook to help your student ages 3-6 years. The OLSAT is often times used to see if a child is gifted and talented. 

Before you start with the test prep the book gives you very detailed instructions on what to do for your child’s age and how to get them ready for this large test. Since our daughter is 5 I am supposed to only read the question one time aloud and the rest is up to her to figure out. I always suspected our daughter was very bright. This test prep booklet pretty much confirmed my finding as she was able to do a whole test no problem. 

A huge plus to this test prep is that there is more than one test. There are 4 practice tests in all and they get progressively more advanced as you go through the workbook. I do like that the pages are in color. Doing 60 questions in all black and white would get pretty boring for a 3 to 6 year old. 

In case you are wondering the last page in the booklet are the answers to all the questions given even the sample questions at the beginning. If you are having your hold take the OLSAT then this would be a great way to prep. Or if you just want to see how your little one does or an extra activity for them to do then this book would benefit you, too.

Review: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
