  • Definitely creative one…not sure if my 3.5 years old will like it or not??One query..as I haven’t seen any ur post for abacus….. abacus course are good for 4 years old??

  • Thanks, Susan. Great warm-ups…quick and easy and fun. You mentioned a link to the cards (in case we didn’t want to make our own ‘wrong’ cards), but I couldn’t find the link for those cards. Will you email it to me? Thanks!

  • Hi Susan! I am loving your Sunday series! I especially appreciate the “grab and go” aspect of it. It’s so great to start the week with a new game that I can get excited about and get my students excited about. I have some super high flyers in my first grade class (about 4). It would be terrific is you had some phonics games for a small group that I could share with them. Also, if you had some games for capitalization and punctuation, I would LOVE it. I have sooo many students who learned to start sentences with capitals and use an end mark at the end all last year and all this year and still don’t do it!!! Maybe putting it in a game format would help with that. Keep up the good work!
