You can always give the Monster Quiz another try. We suggest that you start at a lower level and work up to make sure you have these skills solidly in place. It is better to redo and strengthen skills then to skip over something because “I already know how to do that.”
You could always explore other monsters as well. If it seems like the description is good fit for your kiddo, you may choose to start there. As an example, Bimmy wants to solve her own problems but really struggles to do so. She usually looks for solutions people have already created. If this sounds like your child, this could be a good fit.
A VERY general ranking of monsters by grade is Slog (preschool), Lorson (K-2), Bimmy (3-4), Cookie (4-5), Forley (6-8), Woopa (9-12), Thally (adults).
