OF MARKING ENGLISH—FOR
Adding value to
your child's future
As you now know Kumon is a
daily commitment. It is
expected that your child com-
pletes at least one workbook
per day. To just do the
workbook is NOT ENOUGH! It
needs to be marked and
corrected so that every single
page has a score of 100%.
Your child’s Kumon is NOT
finished unless you have fixed
every mistake in their assigned
workbook for that day.
To go on to the next workbook
without having corrected the
last workbook is detrimental to
your child’s learning process.

however, is incomplete.
An example of this is
where there is a spelling
error, capitalisation error,
punctuation error or a
word is omitted.
NB. Please note that a
tick would be used for
any spelling, capitalisa-
tion or punctuation error
when the purpose of the
exercise is spelling, capi-
talisation or punctuation.
MARKING ENGLISH FRONT PAGE There are two scenarios you can end up with after
a Kumon workbook has been corrected:
Scenario 1—No mistakes were made. To indicate
this write a large 100% inside the circle on the front
page as shown below. A congratulatory comment can add a nice touch also.
Scenario 2—Mistakes were made. To indicate that
mistakes were made first time through and they are
now all correct write a 100% outside the circle on the
front page OR in the top left hand corner of the front
page as shown below. A regular comment of
encouragement is always appreciated too.
Always use a red pen
Always write neatly
Use the appropriate answer book
Sides a & b are considered as one page
GRADING (Please use a RED pen)
If there are NO mistakes then circle the
page. Write 100 in the top right-hand corner of
side a to indicate that all questions are correct
on side a & b.
Tick the question number if the answer is
wrong. Each tick has a value of 5 points, unless
otherwise specified on the worksheets eg Levels
Place a triangle around the question number if
your child has spelt a word wrong, left a word out
or forgotten a capital letter or full stop for
example. Each triangle has a value of 1 point.
Add the marks up on both sides a and b and
then deduct that total from 100 to give a score
for that page. Write this score with a downward
arrow below in the top right-hand corner of side
a. Continue this for every page.
IF YOUR CHILD IS SELF-MARKING PLEASE EN-
SURE THEY CLOSE THE ANSWER BOOK TO FIX
When corrections are done re-check the
answers to ensure each answer is now correct
and if so then circle the tick/triangle and write
100 below the arrow on side a. This page is now
Keep in mind it may take more than one attempt
to correct an answer.
