School Zone Publishing: Nourishing Young Minds

OUR STORY: Almost 40 years ago, long-time educators James Hoffman, Ed.D., and his wife Joan Hoffman, M.A., began a retail supply outlet for teachers, then soon identified a need for at-home learning materials to help parents support and supplement their children's classroom instruction. School Zone Publishing fast emerged as the market leader in workbooks and flash cards for preschoolers through sixth graders.

School Zone remains family-owned, focused on excellence, responsive to customers, alert to emerging technology, and committed to community. We continually update our products with new features and content, reflective of changing standards, evolving teaching methods, and overall best practices. As just one example, we update our workbook curriculum on an as-needed basis to address changing standards such as those presented by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and Common Core.

Klutz LEGO Chain Reactions Craft Kit
LEGO Chain Reactions is packed full of ideas, instructions, and inspiration for 10 LEGO machines that spin, swing, pivot, roll, lift, and drop. Each machine alone is awesome, but put them together and you get incredible chain reactions. Then, combine the machines in any order you like to create your own chain reactions. Our team of experts worked with educators and 11-year-olds to invent the machines, then wrote a book that teaches the skills (and some of the physics behind the fun) kids need to create their own amazing chain reaction machines.

Our book includes 33 special LEGO elements that combine with basic bricks from your collection to make your machines go. But don’t worry that you won’t have the right bricks; we worked with the folks at LEGO to make sure you’ll need only the most common bricks, and that there are plenty of substitutes. The result is a chain reaction of fun, as one thing leads to another… and another… and another.

Comes with: 78 page book, 33 LEGO elements, 6 LEGO balls, 6 feet of string, 8 paper ramps, 2 paper pop-up signs, 1 paper funnel ramp, 1 paper flag, 1 paper bucket, 1 platform

The Most Magnificent Thing
Award-winning author and illustrator Ashley Spires has created a charming picture book about an unnamed girl and her very best friend, who happens to be a dog. The girl has a wonderful idea. "She is going to make the most MAGNIFICENT thing! She knows just how it will look. She knows just how it will work. All she has to do is make it, and she makes things all the time. Easy-peasy!" But making her magnificent thing is anything but easy, and the girl tries and fails, repeatedly. Eventually, the girl gets really, really mad. She is so mad, in fact, that she quits. But after her dog convinces her to take a walk, she comes back to her project with renewed enthusiasm and manages to get it just right. For the early grades' exploration of character education, this funny book offers a perfect example of the rewards of perseverance and creativity. The girl's frustration and anger are vividly depicted in the detailed art, and the story offers good options for dealing honestly with these feelings, while at the same time reassuring children that it's okay to make mistakes. The clever use of verbs in groups of threes is both fun and functional, offering opportunities for wonderful vocabulary enrichment. The girl doesn't just "make" her magnificent thing -- she "tinkers and hammers and measures," she "smoothes and wrenches and fiddles," she "twists and tweaks and fastens." These precise action words are likely to fire up the imaginations of youngsters eager to create their own inventions and is a great tie-in to learning about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

Preschool Scholar Deluxe Edition Workbook, Ages 3-5, tracing letters & numbers, learning shapes & colors, animal names, playful motivation
A pleased parent had this to say about Preschool Scholar Workbook: This is the first workbook that I bought for my 3 year old son. He loved the pages and asked every day to do some work in his book! I've bought the Big workbook for preschool and we just started it. I've also got a 1 year old and she loves to watch us as work in the books!

Help your preschooler get ready for a great start with this Preschool Scholar Workbook. Follow the lovable Lulu on a trip through the Grand Zoo, as an iguana, quetzal, unicorn, and other critter friends make reading and writing ABCs so much fun! Kids will enjoy learning the names of the animals that start with the letters of the alphabet. They will also practice tracing letters and numbers, learning shapes and colors, identifying same and different, plus matching, sequencing, and following directions. Lulu's jokes and fun facts add smiles and learning opportunities. Examples include 'What kind of cat lives in the ocean?' and 'Butterflies have transparent wings and taste with their feet.' Find a lively selection of reading readiness, early math, and beginning science activities in our zoo-tastic Preschool Scholar; the skill focus is listed at the bottom of every page for easy reference. Bold, colorful illustrations help little learners stay focused and motivated, and when they are all done, they can fill out the completion reward certificate and display it with pride! A Parent Guide inside the front cover offers helpful tips for maximizing the learning, and Activities to Share inside the back cover suggest fun, easy, creative activities that get kids stretching their senses and critical thinking skills. They include 'Sun Photographs,' 'Kids in the Kitchen,' 'Musical Buttons,' and more. This workbook is an excellent size for tucking into a tote or backpack and turning road trips and wait times into learning opportunities. Create curiosity and a love of learning.

Kids love color, characters, and 'room' to play. School Zone workbooks deliver all that and so much more. Almost 40 years ago the company responded to parents need for tools to help reinforce in-school learning. Workbooks continue to be just the right combination of play and practice, making them excellent, teacher-created, parent-approved resources. Writing by hand fires up specific parts of a child's brain, improving a child s ability not only to remember what he or she learns, but to think of new ideas. Think of workbooks as analog devices because workbook practice can help kids develop fine motor skills, focus on the task at hand, and learn at their own pace.

Use this Preschool Scholar Workbook to create curiosity and a love of learning and help little ones build skills for school success. Reading readiness develops as preschoolers practice their ABCs and beginning sounds. They also begin to print and write by tracing letters, and they use positional words, rhyming words, and beginning sounds. Preschoolers identify shapes and colors and sharpen visual discrimination and critical thinking by recognizing patterns, establishing cause and effect, and sequencing, sorting, and classifying. The activities also give eye-hand coordination and the ability to follow directions an excellent workout. A solid foundation in basic skills builds confidence, and motivating kids and helping them value learning gives them a big advantage inside and outside of school.
