What is critical thinking? The objective analysis and evaluation of an issue in order to form a judgment. To see a problem and form a solution to solve it. It is important for our children to understand and know how to think critically. The Critical Thinking Co. does not teach through drills and memorization or teach tests, they empower the mind! Their goals are higher grades, top test scores, and problem-solving skills to meet all of life’s challenges.
OLSAT® Test Prep Level A
We got the privilege to review OLSAT® Test Prep Level A, which is the most commonly used assessment for identifying gifted children during elementary age. This assessment tool is to find your student’s strengths and deficiencies. OLSAT Test prep Level A is a teaching to the rest approach leaving students vulnerable to variations of a problem that they are likely to encounter in a test.
How We Used It
I had my daughter Ellie (4 years old) go through with me. She is a new reader so I helped her through the instructions on each page. Although she is a workbook kinda gal. Let me tell you, she did not want to be put this way. Page after page she was getting every question right! I was impressed with her understanding of some of those questions. For example, they used “ “, she got it immediately! I had to reread the statement and question to make sure she was right. My eldest son Jedidiah (5) would chime in here and there to be a part of the action and of course, being the oldest child and a boy, he needed to compete. Which was good! Most of the time Ellie and I would go through OLSAT® Test Prep Level A when Jedi was doing school with Grandpa so it was mostly focused on her. But I definitely will be doing this with my son alone as well. It is so cool to see how quickly your kids can think and if they can’t, what better way than to train them to do so?!
