Creature Features - Learn About Animals

Do you have a kiddo who loves everything and anything about animals?  Well, now you can get them to practice their non-fiction reading skills learning about the animals that interest them the most at National Geographic Kids.  You can see the picture from the honeybees section above, but your child can choose to read about other animals including: penguins, elephants, and bullfrogs.  Not only can they read facts and look at photos, but some of the animals include videos and sound clips as well!

You can also use them for lesson planning as well.

Free Cursive Handwriting Book

I know that there has been quite the controversy about our handwriting skills going away with the computer age, but I believe that it is important for kiddos to be able to read and write in cursive.  If you agree, and have a kiddo or two working on their handwriting, you will definitely want to check out this free cursive handwriting book.  It is a complete workbook with 80 pages of cursive handwriting practice.  It starts with a manuscript review, and then goes into instruction and practice of cursive letters.
