Build the Skills Your Children Need for Gifted Tests—and Independent Thinking
Gifted tests aren’t achievement tests that cover knowledge your child has learned in school. Instead, they’re cognitive tests that assess your child’s thinking and reasoning abilities.
Developing higher-order thinking and problem-solving abilities will help your child score higher on these exams, and it will also form an essential part of your child’s intellectual development.
Your children will use their thinking and reasoning abilities to develop independent thinking patterns, including:
Making better decisions, like choosing to wear a coat when it’s cold outside.Understanding the consequences of their actions, such as the fact that saying something mean might make their sibling cry.Solving problems like what to do if their frisbee sails out of the yard and across the street, where they’re not allowed to go.Turning their feelings into words so they can express themselves more effectively with their parents, siblings, peers and teachers.
We’ll make it easy (and fun!) for you to strengthen your child’s skills in this arena. TestingMom’s Thinking and Problem Solving Gifted Learning Flash Cards will give you all the questions, activities and prompts you need to ignite your child’s higher thinking.
Plus, playing with these cards will feel like simple fun to your child. But you’ll know that you’re developing skills your children will use at home, on Test Day, in the classroom and beyond.

Why We Love Involved Parents
Karen Quinn, the Testing Mom, began developing resources for parents who wanted to take charge of their children’s education after struggling to find materials to work with her son, Sam. When Sam scored much lower on an early IQ test than she knew he was capable of, Karen realized she needed to take action.
Karen took a stand for Sam, developing games and brain training exercises to help him develop critical skills. At his next test, Sam’s scores jumped from the 37th percentile to the 94th! In fact, he scored higher than every one of his classmates.
Through her experience, Karen realized that the more involved parents are with their kids’ education, the more successful those kids will be in reaching their true potential.
Karen’s started creating colorful, fun and playful materials for parents and grandparents to use with their families. TestingMom’s Gifted Learning flash cards offer a simple and easy way for parents to make learning feel like a game—at home or on the go!
BUILD THE HIGHER-ORDER THINKING THAT CREATES STRONGER STUDENTS: Improve your children’s ability to think critically and solve problems to help them score higher on gifted tests and excel in school.
TURN SKILL BUILDING INTO PLAY with activities featuring TestingMom’s wacky and silly Space Babies! Use these cards to make a long car ride feel shorter. Or add in a few rewards (like a sticker for every right answer!) and make learning a game.
