I found this in my 2nd grader’s classroom. Everyone knows the days of the week song (There are 7 days, There are 7 days, there are seeveen days in a week … Sunday, Monday; Tuesday, Wednesday; Thursday, Friday; Saturday), but I do remember that it was challenging for my kids to learn the months of year, particularly in a foreign language. However, I never guessed that this post would be so popular.
As the year winds down, I wanted to repost my Top 10: Posts of the Year which I have selected on the basis of number of page views. I will resume my weekly features starting the first of the new year!
Thank you for sending in photos GeekMom , Mama and the Boys, and There’s a Book. I can’t do this weekly Monday feature with your help, so please keep the photos coming.
In the case of Nancy Yi Fan, it’s clear she was born with a special gift. My 10-year-old, nearly 11-year-old brought home this book for me to blog on. (At the same age, Nancy had banged out a draft of this book and was sending it in to publishers!).
To clean out my shelves because the books keep coming in (’cause I keep buying them), I am going to give away books on Second Hand Saturday. Please just leave me a comment with which book you want and I will email you for your address to mail it to you. Thanks!
Gifts for kids around $20.
Every year you say you are going to do it. Get prepared before the holiday rush. And every year, you find yourself running around the mall at the last minute when you could be home wrapping gifts or baking cookies. It’s the perfect time of year to make your holiday fantasies come true. This year you can be watching holiday movies while everyone else you know is at the mall.
