Here are some free reading cards about metamorphosis for younger readers. It’s a great way to learn about science while learning new words.
You can help Haiti after this devastating earthquake by donating to the Mennonite Central Committee. They serve the needs of people around the world with their peaceful ways.
They already have their workers in Haiti. Even during Hurricane Katrina they were some of the first people on the ground to help. You can’t find a better organization that uses their money and resources for those they serve. You won’t find high paid CEO’s with this organization.

Counting is an important math skill. Montessori classrooms use the pink tower stacking blocks to teach the first concrete steps for counting. Here is a newsletter with free printouts and lesson ideas to use with your child. There is even a printout in Spanish.
If you don’t have a pink or natural tower you can use nesting blocks or other stacking blocks. You can find them at toy departments or stores.
