Disadvantage: too easy for some 2nd graders. Most of sections have tracing writhing which is way to easy. 2nd graders need more challenging works.

In this book there are 36 lessons (they are on two pages and can be done in about 10 mins).
You get vocabulary, pronouns, irregular plural nouns, verbs in present and past tense, irregular verbs, contractions, adjectives, subject and predicate, adverbs, punctuation, writing sentences and then stories.
The pages are colourful and since the exercises are short and sweet, it's easy to keep the children's attention captive for those 10 minutes they work in the book. Mine are quite happy to work away by themselves with no or little help. In the back, you can find all the solutions, so needn't worry if this subject is not your forte...
If your are willing to spend time and effort this is a good alternative to paying £70 per month per subject for attending KUMON training center.
Would recommend for basic learning but would not continue after stage 3.
