Glad we r in the same stage of Kumon! My son also talks a looot and active! :lol:

Initially he also took 40 min in fact 3 hrs also sometimes. What I felt for my son is - discipline motivation and time consciousness have to be encouraged. It is very diff but worth it. My son never ever stops talking. I loss my temper but still after Kumon I HAVE LEARNT to be patient to make things work with my son. He is also repeating the Level 2A (maths) second time since we had to break for 8 months. And then he had to take up test and go down from 2A to 4A and now he is back to level 2A. But now I feel he is more clear and mature.

Motivate, motivate, patience. It is a challenge! Reward them, appreciate them, all modestly.

My DS is taking 2A test today since he has completed 2A worksheets :roll: ! Expecting whatever to happen 8) !

I say, 'finish worksheet in 6 min mummy feel proud (this is for me), and daddy feel happy(for daddy), and i will tell ur Kumon friend that u have achieved, will buy u the food u like to eat, u can go to higher level, finish the entire kumon faster, and then all is done! U will score well in primary. U will feel proud and ur future will be bright, what ever, to make them really understand it is for their good, and make them happy, and make them understand. Everything moderately without stressing them. Give all the trust warmth and love they need. They will soon realise. My son will still grumble sometimes when his mood is not good. But is ok, we got to be patient. They will do it.

All the Best

Hi Jona/hnghng,

Any possibility of you to scan and send me a sample of the Kumon worksheets? My DD is in K2 too, and I would like to find out where she is in Kumon's standard.

Thanks!

Do they sell such graded worksheets to the public (i.e. to non Kumon students)?
I know that Kumon sells "Kumon Workbooks" in most book stores, but I think they are different.

I have seen Kumon workbooks not sure if it is the same. But u can attend their observation sessions where u can sit in. And kids given test to determine which level they belong to and they can enter that level directly instead of starting from Level 7A to travel up based on individual kids skills.

I was hoping to buy the graded materials for home use without signing up for Kumon due to my limited budget for enrichment courses.
But it's fine if the materials are not available to non-Kumon students. I can use other alternative material.

Thanks for your info!

Need some advise here from parents who's kids are with Kumon.

I've just enrolled my child to Kumon this week. I realised that the homeworks that my child took back, are all the same sets, eg, 2 sets of 3A21A and 3 sets of 3A30A for example. Is this the norm? I know they do repeat worksheets but by having 3 sets of the same worksheets on the same week, arn't my child doing the exact same questions everyday? I feel its such a waste of time if that's the case. Or did they gave the same worksheets out by mistake?

Please enlighten me. Many thanks!

My kids have also gotten repeats. From what I know about Kumon, they not only have to complete it on time, but complete it accurately. In your case, since you have just enrolled your child this week, maybe they are testing your child. If they find the child can do fast and correct, maybe they will go faster. Then again, I guess things differ in each center.
