Kumon Books

World renowned Kumon workbooks are guaranteed to make a difference by turning learning into kid friendly fun. With stickering, colourful word tracing, and vibrant illustrations, your kids will find that picking up a new skill has never been so easy – or enjoyable.

Every Kumon workbook is based on the "Kumon Method", an proven educational philosophy from Japan that aims at unlocking the full learning potential of each individual child. 

From counting numbers 1 through 10, to learning consonants and vowels, and even mastering new math topics, Kumon workbooks contain a whirlwind of activities like word problems and tracing or writing activities to help your child learn in a fun and interactive way. 

The Kumon Method introduces learning concepts in a step-by-step and incremental approach, allowing children to easily learn new skills, without the frustration or anxiety. This unique approach helps kids gain confidence in their abilities, and overtime, they become motivated to learn on their own.

 

Why Parents Love Kumon Books!

Here, we answer the most common questions regarding Kumon books in Singapore!

The Kumon Method lets students begin studying from an easily accessible level, without making judgments based on age or school grade level. This enables them to experience the pure joy of learning, which is a powerful motivator for progressive learning in the long run.

For example, when a student is able to confidently do their homework by themselves, with a perfect 100 percent score, the child will naturally enjoy studying, and feel motivated to advance to the next set of worksheets without requiring external prodding.

As a parent, finding a comfortable starting point is crucial for building a solid foundation and feedback loop for your child; this allows them to independently develop their academic ability and achieve greater progress while keeping them motivated and happy!

At Kumon, they believe that if parents do not lay a strong foundation, it will be difficult for kids to proceed upwards. For example, a Primary 3 kid may only be able to complete Primary 1 level work if he does not have the proper foundation.

Kumon certainly has been the most valuable product for most parents when it comes to mathematics books. Many parents have gotten their children to complete a page every day – and it has often improved their performance in mathematics!

According to one parent’s experience with their 6 year old son: “It was worth the time and effort up to a point. It was worth it in general because it helped him concentrate and get into a daily study routine.”

Kumon can be very beneficial; however, overdoing it may make learning math repetitive and less interesting for children. In order for kids to truly retain information, doing math workbooks should be combined with other engaging educational toys and activities to help them learn in a number of ways and stay interested.

Compared to the program, the book may be more valuable for parents who have time to supervise their children. According to online reviews, “even if you attend the (kumon) class, the teacher will just let the kid do the worksheet on their own. It is more of self study, not much teaching.”

Here at The Toy Folks!

Kumon workbooks are available in-store and online! We have probably the largest range of topics and levels for all age groups! 

Kumon's mathematics workbooks provide children with the ability for a solid understanding of arithmetic, fractions, decimals, and others. The Calculation Workbooks follow the Kumon Method, a proven learning system that has helped kids progress in math. Kumon Workbooks gradually introduce new and more challenging topics in a logical progression – this will ensure plenty of practice questions before moving on to harder topics.

According to Kumon, students are always learning at a pace and level that is “just-right” for them. Kumon teaches students to develop an independent, self-learning and advanced academic ability over time.

According to parents: Kumon believes that practice makes perfect and the worksheets are designed to continuously repeat certain concepts, but with a fixed sequence and format.

3 years old is an ideal time to start reading Kumon Assessment Books – though any time is better than none at all!

Founded in 2004, Kumon Publishing North America (KPNA) has educational roots in the early 1950s. KPNA is the English-language subsidiary of Kumon Publishing Co., Ltd., one of the best-selling producers of children's educational books in Japan.

Over 3.5 million children around the world use the Kumon Method to develop their math and reading skills. Kumon Math and Reading Centers help students in Singapore become successful, confident and self-motivated learners.
