Cover of: Reading by Susan Amerikaner
About the Book

GIFTED AND TALENTED WORKBOOKS will help develop your child's natural talents and gifts by providing activities to enhance critical and creative thinking skills. These skills of logic and reasoning teach children how to think. They are precisely the skills emphasized by teachers of gifted and talented children.
Thinking skills are the skills needed to be able to learn anything at any time. Unlike events, words, and teaching methods, thinking skills never change. If a child has a grasp of how to think, school success and even success in life will become more assured. In addition, the child will become self-confident as he or she approaches new tasks with the ability to think them through and discover solutions.
GIFTED AND TALENTED WORKBOOKS present these skills in a unique way, combining the basic subject areas of reading, language arts, and math with thinking skills. The top of each page is labeled to indicate the specific thinking skill developed. Here are some of the skills you will find:
• Deduction - the ability to reach a logical conclusion by interpreting clues
• Understanding Relationships - the ability to recognize how objects, shapes, and words are similar or dissimilar; to classify and categorize
• Sequencing - the ability to organize events, numbers; to recognize patterns
• Inference - the ability to reach logical conclusions from given or assumed evidence
• Creative Thinking - the ability to generate unique ideas; to compare and contrast the same elements in different situations; to present imaginative solutions to problems
