We are trying a new kind of dot to dot page, suggested by Shelly. Rather than count in 1s or join the dots for the alphabet, like our other dot to dot puzzles, this new set for summer asks children to count by 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s or 10s.

One of the most common things I am asked during Teacher Appreciation Week is “What do teachers really want?” I think this is a tough question to answer because it depends on so many things; how well funded is their school? Are they the primary breadwinner? Are they paying for three kids in college? Do […]
