MiniLUK is a complete intellectual development system for children aged from 5 to 7. It is designed to maximize children's learning through play while remaining flexible enough to meet individual needs. It contains one easy-to-operate controller with 12 numbered tiles and a series of workbooks targeted for various intellectual development areas.
With vivid illustrations, challenging contents, and a consistent learning model, miniLUK offers more complex activities that those in bambinoLUK in the areas of memorization, concentration, visual perception, logical thinking, vocabulary and language skills, mathematical skills and more. Each two or three books set below focuses on one skill area. More complex material is available in the miniLUK Advance workbooks.
Static and animated demonstrations illustrating how the controller is used with the books are available. The controller enables a child to work independently and check their own answers. Children develop perseverance and concentration. Unlike a traditional workbook with exercises which can be completely only once the miniLUK exercises can be done many times. Adapting problems by requiring a child to work from the answer to the question, for example, or asking them to explain their process as they work through a problem adds play time and learning value. More information about the individual books and sample pages can be found by clicking on "more info" after the brief product description of any workbook set below and then on the "sample pages" tab to get a look inside.
The miniLUK set is ideal for families to use for portable, independent learning of core thinking skills. The independence with which is can be used makes it very useful for learning center use and to have on hand for those children who complete the assigned work in advance of other students. If you are looking for material for gifted program testing for your child this is a great place to start. The material covered in miniLUK is relevant for all tests commonly used to identify gifted children at this level.
