Winter Sight Word Printables

Do you have a budding reader at home? Learning sight words is not intuitive - you cannot sound them out like you can other simple words or CVC words. Sometimes, an extra activity to practice reading (or writing) these difficult words can really help children! Today, I am sharing our Snowman sight words cards that can [...]

Montessori Baby Activities: Balance beam for babies

Gross motor development is such an amazing part of baby's growth!
