We desperately need some more materials to choose from for word work! I keep going back and forth about just spending my own money but I decided that I have already spent enough this year! (I am sure that you can relate) So this is an attempt to get some outside help for my kiddos.
I know that my audience (ever how small it may be) is made of primarily teachers but I want to get the word out to as many people as I can!
