I am really happy with my experience with introducing Gakken Go Go Series Workbooks for my son. Each month his playgroup teacher gives us to check his activity books, so I found that even he is a toddler, they can do basic activities like matching and tracing other than just colouring. These activities are the foundation for their writing skills.
As I am keen on early education, I also prefer to do educational activities at home with him. So, I always try to learn and find the age appropriate activities for young kids, so I can easily follow the instructions with my kid. When I received the opportunity to try the Gakken’s Go Go series workbooks, I was really happy because these books are created by early educational professionals and experts. With the guidance given in the books, we can easily guide our kids with different activities which enhance their skills.
Gakken Go Go Series Workbooks
The Gakken Go Go Series include workbooks for 3 stages of age which are 2 – 4 year olds, 3 -5 year olds and 4 – 6 year olds. The books are filled with interesting activities and games which develop reasoning and judgment skills of young kids and the Go Go series is based on the ‘Brain Development Series’ from Japan.
As workbooks are also packed with variety of activities such as colouring, cutting and pasting, it is really easy to introduce to the young kids without any worries.
Gakken Go Go Series Workbooks Review and our experience
Our kid who likes books was really happy and excited when he saw the new books. As the books come with stickers for activities and as rewards, he was over the moon! We started with Go Go series Drawing book which is for 2-4 years old kids. This book aims to develop the fine motor skills of kids such as drawing dots, lines, curves and practicing the pencil control.
The book starts with practicing of drawing dots and improves the skills such as dotted lines, vertical lines, and diagonal lines in each page. At the end of the book, it aims developing colouring and drawing skills step by step.
We started from this book and my idea was doing 1 or 2 activities per day. However, within a week we finished almost all activities of 64 pages book because my son loves all the activities and he wants to continue with his excitement for new activity books. 🙂
All these Go Go Series workbooks are with reward stickers and activity stickers which make the learning fun. The books also include instructions for the parents including how to use the book. This is really useful because any parent who doesn’t have special knowledge on teaching for young kids can easily learn how to guide their kids. Each lesson/activity also starts with instructions for parents. I really like that, so I can understand the aim of each activity before we do. That always give the fruitful results than just doing some workbook activities with the kid.
After completing Gakken Go Go Drawing 2-4 yrs,then we started Gakken Go Go Life Skills for 3-5 yrs and Gakken Go Go Mazes 3-5 yrs workbooks.We also recieved Gakken Go Go Mazes 4-6 yrs workbook.As my kid is just 3 years old,I keep this book to do later once all other 3 books are completed.
Other than handwriting and drawing skills,these books also improve the decision making skills,reasoning and recognition.
Overall we are really happy with our experience and I hope this review on Gakken Go Go Series Workbooks will help you to decide on purchasing for your kids.
