Primary Analogies Books introduce young students to sophisticated thinking skills as they learn to read. To introduce the idea of solving analogies, a pre-analogy section gives practice in finding similarities, categorizing, making comparisons, and using Venn diagrams. Exercises continue with picture-to-picture analogies. Two pictures that have a special relationship are connected by a line in a frame containing six pictures. Students choose two other pictures from the frame that have the same relationship and connect them with a line. As students begin to learn the letters of the alphabet, the analogies include them, combining letters and pictures or symbols,and progressing to analogies using only words-easy, phonetically regular words as well as words students meet in their reading and in their daily lives. In the culminating All-Star Level, students make up their own analogies, choosing from labeled pictures in a box and telling, in writing, how the pictures go together. Primary Analogies groups analogous relationships into 5 categories: Descriptive, Comparative, Categorical, Serial, and Casual, with three levels of difficulty within each category. This book is recommended for Grades K-3 and is non-reproducible.
