Pls can anybody know the Kumon classes in which areas are located.
Hi, Kumon is present in India only in Delhi, Noida and a few towns in the North. Pls. try - http://www.kumon.co.in/aboutkumon/kumonindia.php
I would be happy if they are present in Bangalore too...
Hi, You can try using Kumon workbooks.
Hi, Thank u very much ,but do u have any idea where these centres are .pls let me know.
i've bought kumon workbooks from flipkart.......they r equally good & much cheaper.
can u get kumon workbooks from normal shop like landmark , himalaya ( hyderabad ) shop.
As Aparna said, there is no kumon centers in south India.
I have seen some of the workbooks (Age 4, 5,6) in Landmark. but not all. So I order them online.
Can any one tell me is Kumon suitable to Indian type of education system because classes are once a week & material along with answer sheets is given to be done at home for the remaining weeks ie each day one paper.After finishing papers mothers should correct them &papers are submitted to the centre for their records.
I would say it's very much suitable for Indian Education system but may not be suitable for US and UK system. B'cos it gives rigorous training and lots of repetition in math just like how we used to do during our school days (though I don't like it much as the work load is way toooo much for the kids as they move to higher classes). I have seen my friends' kids who do nearly 150 to 200 problems a day in grade 3. That's the reason i haven't enrolled my little one but use the workbooks at our own pace. But i liked the language and math course materials for small children at the age of 3,4 and 5. But here the papers are corrected by the teachers in the center and not by the parents. They have to just note down the time taken to finish the assignment.
hi vans1234 and roshmom,
thanks for the discussion.will it b useful if i introduce it to my 5 year old?
could you please share about the workbook...
i tried searching in flipcart for kumon workboo but i coudnt find. kindly help me how to get it through flipcart.
thanks in advance....
I think you got the worng URL.
Please check the following link for all the Kumon publishing workbooks that are available in flipkart.
many thanks for your quick reply. thanks for the link... after cing the set of books i am really confused... my son can read simple stories and can do simple addition and subtraction... what kind of books from this set will b useful. if you dont mind can you please guide me in this.. . thanks once again...
Hi,I don't understand what you mean by simple addition and subtraction. There are books on addition such asa. "My book of Simple addition" that includes adding 1 or 2 to any numbers. b. "My book of addition" includes adding any number from 1 to 9 to any number.c. Addition Grade 1 - haven't seen the content of this book yet. Similarly for subtraction, there are 3 books just as mentioned above My son is 5.5. In Math, he has worked till my book of addition, My book of subtraction, My book of Telling time, My book of money - Dollars & cents (his school follows American system of education). Right now not using any Kumon. Have switched over to other type of workbooks. The issue with the time telling book is that the minutes are written in the clock so the kids would just copy the minutes instead of trying themselves. This is there almost until the end of the book. I had to hide all the minute numbers with the marker to make him find the time on his own. I didn't like the workbooks on reading and writing. So haven't got any apart from lower case and upper case letter books when he was 3 yrs. I can't recommend other books (for age above 6) in Math as I haven't seen the content. Sorry I couldn't help you much.
Click on download free ebook.
Its really cool.
For primary math skills
i mean he can do 2 single digit nuber addition and subtraction....i think my book of addition will b useful.... thanks for the information...
Kumon will be opening shortly in Bangalore. The website says :
they have put up the board in brigade metropolis ,whitefield ..not sure when they will be functional
They will be opening two centers, one in brigade metropolis, whitefield and one more in Koramangala I think. They will start functioning from 4th january and before that there will be parents orientation in December last week.
I would like a few suggestions on Kumon maths workbook for pre-k level. I went thro' the kumon workbooks collection in flipkart, there are many books available. I am not able to decide which one will be more suitable as I have not seen the books. Any suggestion based on personal review will be helpful..
Even I would like to know about Kumon workbooks for pre-k level for maths and language.
@Roshmom: any suggestions?
Easy craft,tracing, pasting, amazing maze ( this may not be suitable for 3 yr old), numbers 1-30, first book of lower case, bk of upper case letters.
i am new to kumon.
why kumon and not abacus or for that matter any math related programs??
I won't recommend Enrolling to a regular kumon program for children in class 1 and above as it is about rote learning and rigorous training. I have seen the kids who are enrolled in kumon program struggle to answer open response questions and solve word problems. Here I recommended the workbooks for pre writing skills and pre math skills as I found them interesting for that age. But i do use kumon workbooks for my son who is in class 2 (but have not enrolled in the program though) to increase his math fluency. But as I mentioned earlier, he can work at his own pace. I use them as an addtional resource.
Abacus uses a different procedure / method altogether to solve the arithmetic problems. I dont recommend this either because I don't expect my kid to be a computer who would be able to solve a 10 digit or 20 digit multiplication problem in a fraction of a min or sec. Ofcourse a certain amount of math fluency is needed.Please talk to other parents who have enrolled their kids in abacus to find the effectiveness in the longer run. Then decide which would be suitable for your child.
Need your suggestion in choosing a book for my son who is 4 years now. Now he can recognize and write capital letters (A-Z) and Numbers (1-10). Can you please guide me on which would be the best set of Kumon books for him as you ae already using it for your son.
thanks for such prompt reply. you have made me very clear about both methodology. yes i will talk with more parents thanks once again
It depends on what you want to teach your child. If he can write upper case letters, you may start with "My first books of lower case letters" and "Numbers 1-30". If you want to teach any math concept, I would suggest to use other methods of teaching. My best advice would be to make a visit to Landmark and check the books yourself and decide. Bcos one child may like one type of book and others may not. I don't know what works best for your child.
Any one knows how much is the cost per month for Kumon class.
Both for math n eng?
I am quite satisfied with Kumon...being a working mother it was challenge to make a routine study time and decide what activity to do every day!!! whereas Kumon made my life easy and every day worksheet has become part of the routine now ! Of course we can also introduce additional activities or workbooks along with this. There are many online sites(as mentioned in other threads) where kids can take test and earn points/prizes. This also helps them in getting used to the computer, hand(mouse click) and eye coordination etc.
