AMS - Empowering parents to empower their children with essential knowledge! Why Ask Me Smarter - Preschool-5th grade?
1) Because parents are their children's first and best teachers!
2) Because it is a parent-friendly, kid-engaging resource that reinforces what elementary-aged children are learning in school!
3) Because the BRAIN cannot resist a question! (What color are your eyes?)
4) Because learning is optimized through progressive questioning and spaced repetition!
5) Because it challenges the status quo in that it is the ONLY educational resource currently available that encompasses ALL elementary years in one book!
6) Because learning does not necessarily align with chronological age or with a specific grade level!
7) Because it provides parents with a simplified and stream-lined format in interpreting an elementary school curriculum and prescribed learning targets!
8) Because it is a go-to supplemental resource for home schooling families!
9) Because it serves as a comprehensive summer "bridge" tool or "road trip" companion for reinforcing learned concepts, for preparing students for the next grade level, and for preventing the proverbial "SUMMER SLIDE!" Think outside the deck!
10) Because it is available as one curriculum-comprehensive book aligned to state content standards per grade level that includes thousands of progressive core and non-core questions: Language Arts; Notable Literary Works; Math; Science; Social Studies; Government and Civics; Economics; Physical Education; Health and Safety; The Arts; The Environment; Technology and Information Skills; Current Events; and Timelines.

Ask me Smarter! Because knowledge is potential power!
AMS -
Making knowledge FUN-da-men-tal!
The book with the multi-year shelf life! It is a question and answer book with close to 14,000 questions that encompasses Preschool through 5th grade. It is designed as a one-source tool to help parents and guardians empower their children with a solid knowledge foundation, aligned to state content standards per grade level, as they progress through their elementary school years. Its all-encompassing format is what challenges the status quo and makes it unique. Now when you ask your elementary school children, "What did you learn in school today?," you will be further empowered in that to some extent you will already know!

From the Author:

This book is designed as a supplemental curriculum guide for parents/guardians to help their children learn important facts and concepts across the elementary levels that are child, grade, and age appropriate. It is written in a streamlined, progressive question and answer format and aligned to state learning standards. All the elementary grade levels are integrated together into one book to achieve a comprehensive approach that also accommodates different learning paces. It further allows for review and reinforcement based on child-readiness and retention capacity. Even though a child may learn one topic in a one year does not guarantee the child will retain that same information and have the retention and recall capacity to build on that knowledge the following school year!

Ask Me Smarter! is intended to enhance and reinforce the facts, ideas, and concepts "covered" in each elementary grade level. It encompasses a wide array of core and non-core subjects including language arts; notable literary works; math; science; social studies; government and civics; economics; physical education; health and safety; the arts; the environment; technology and information skills; current events; and historical timelines.

A local or state school curriculum guide may read: "By the end of grade four, students will recognize the three levels of government." Or, "students will name and identify three and four dimensional objects." So what do those listed standards really mean? This books serves to take away the guesswork, and to provide parents and guardians with concrete questions that relate to the listed content standards per grade level. Children learn differently and at different rates, and learning is not always aligned with chronological age or grade. Further, when information is presented in a questioning format at frequent intervals over time known as the "spacing effect," long-term retention is dramatically improved.

It also serves as a supplemental curriculum guide for parents/guardians who are home-schooling their children. It may also prove both entertaining and helpful as a vacation or summer "bridge" tool for young learners, pre-school through 5th grade, when school is not in session.

Ask Me Smarter!
is a result of my difficulty in comprehending my son's just-published 5th grade social studies book that was so convoluted with facts and minute details that the understanding of the main idea was completely lost. After reading a particularly wordy passage on the Civil War, my son had no clue from that reading which leader was on which side and who ultimately won the war!

It further stems from my frustration in locating a resource that did not read like a textbook, or one that was not specific to just one grade level or operate like a workbook. Further, many libraries and bookstores have an abundant selection of educational books, reading books, science experiment books, and colorful trivia decks, but I was not able to locate a single resource that provides a direct and comprehensive approach to asking specific questions to young learners across all core and non-core disciplines. Trivia cards and interactive websites while fun and educational, are somewhat random and hit or miss with regard to ensuring coverage of essential facts encompassing all the academic subject areas. I felt compelled to expand on current resources and compile several grade levels into one book.

It is my hope that Ask Me Smarter! will serve to further empower our young school children with essential knowledge and facts, providing a more solid foundation on which to build as they continue their educational journey. Together, we will provide the means for them to reinforce and expand the knowledge in their sponge-like brains, and provide them the tools to become life-long learners.

Children and parents will benefit from having multiple question decks and more, conveniently consolidated into one comprehensive source. Just the facts, never mind the bells and whistles! It is the educational resource that subscribes to the notion of "making knowledge FUN-da-men-tal." It is based on the premise that parents/guardians are their children's first and best teachers!

From the Back Cover:


The book with the multi-year shelf life!


An elementary curriculum, streamlined and simplified.

Just the facts, never mind the "bells and whistles."

This book aims to take the guesswork out of interpreting an elementary school curriculum, and to provide concrete questions that relate to specific learning standards and outcomes per grade level.

"Ask Me Smarter!" is the one-source tool to help parents/guardians empower their children with a solid knowledge foundation, based on traditional state academic standards, as they progress through their formative, elementary school years.

This book is designed to enhance and reinforce the facts, ideas, and concepts "covered" in each elementary grade level, using a simple, straightforward question and answer format.

It is a book based on the notion that learning is a lifelong process, and that children learn at different paces. Learning is not necessarily aligned to chronological grade or age.

"The Spacing Effect" - Facts are learned best when they are studied at frequent intervals over a long time span. All learners benefit from sustained practice over time.

Everything from Aesop to Zeus: fables, songs, colors, numbers, phonics, sight words, rhymes, poems, fairy tales, authors, spelling, grammar, books, arithmetic, algebra, geometry, Earth science, biology, chemistry, scientists, geography, history, civics, holidays, early American heritage, Native Americans, African Americans, artworks, architecture, music, dance, inventions, technology skills, world wonders, timelines, Romans and Greeks.

The "Smart Goals" of education are optimized in this question format in that the learning is:
Specific - Measurable - Attainable - Results-oriented - Time-framed - Empowering - Reinforcing.
