Item Description...
An analogy is a comparison that points out the similarities between things that are different in all other respects. Teaching students how to solve analogies not only develops their logical thinking, but also builds visual awareness and verbal proficiency.
The seven different types of visual analogies and 14 different verbal analogies in "Analogies for Beginners" are perfect for beginning lessons in logical reasoning, flexible thinking, and vocabulary. Each page gives students an example of the type of analogy that is being introduced and then provides 7 (visual) or 10 (verbal) problems for them to solve. This combination of verbal and visual formats is an ideal way to introduce logical thinking in primary grades. Whether you have time for one analogy a day, or a worksheet a week, students will benefit in many ways when analogies are part of your curriculum. The use of visual analogies is beneficial for developing visual analysis even for older students, but especially useful for nonreaders and students with developing English skills. The verbal analogies provide students with exercises that require them to use word comprehension and also to examine various characteristics, uses, and relationships.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
SAT style reasoning for young children.  Oct 8, 2008
This book is a good way to get younger children familiar with the reasoning problems found on an SAT test. The problems start out very simple and easy and progress to more difficult problems. The beginning of the book was too simplistic for my nine-year-old, so he started at the mid-point.
The book has questions like: ABC is to CBA like XYZ is to ____. It gives you a list of four possible choices, which in this case the answer would be ZYX. The answers are found on the back cover of the book.
I would recommend this book for ages 7-9.
Great for young thinkers!  May 31, 2008
I teach 2nd Grade, and this is a great book to get students thinking in ways they don't normally have to. The brain is a pattern-seeker, and this helps them to see relationships, first in figures, then later in words. I recommend it to teachers and parents of children in 1-3 grades.
Good for beginners.  Nov 30, 2007
I bought this book because my kids are learning about analogies in school. This went along nicely with the curriculum.
