In the end, Blue Screen of Death is a good introduction to Colby’s world while leaving plenty to explore in the sequel.” – Mia Faller (wordofthenerdonline.com)

Printing Practice for Pre-Kindergarten

Teaching young children to write print is one way of encouraging their literacy levels. Print writing is used as a reliable exercise in developing your child’s handwriting too!

My First Crossword

When youngsters first begin learning to read and write words, they first comprehend simple words such as it, play, and up.

Handwriting is a dwindling art-form, and worse is that most schools in over 40 states no longer require teaching longhand or cursive.
