Practicing and Remembering Multiplication Facts

If your kiddos are working on mastering their multiplication facts, then
might be the site for you.  At the site, your child can choose a specific fact that they are struggling with, and they can listen to an audio and video story that will help them remember the fact.  Students can also take pre-tests on the facts, view tips and tricks for remembering the facts, play games, and much more!

Jellybean Color Emergent Reader

I found an adorable jelly bean themed emergent reader over at Teach with me. It is a perfect way to both celebrate Easter and the spring holidays while practicing reading color words. Your child will also get practice tracing then writing each color word before they practice reading.
