If you are in charge of a website for your school, classroom or other organization, you know that keeping your site updated with fresh daily content is a lot of work. That’s why my free daily content applets have been so popular with teachers and parents (and schools and organizations) with websites.
Now “Coloring Page of the Day” joins “Daily Chuckle” and “Daily Factoid” as another free daily feature for webmasters to place on their sites. With a simple line of code, you can have a fresh, seasonal coloring page on your website every day.
Take a look over at the Surfnetkids Free Content Program… just scroll down a bit (past the Daily Factoid and Daily Chuckle) to see the brand-new Coloring Page of the Day:
As always, your feedback is welcome:
See ya on the Net,

Multiplication Printable (** for premium members only)
Is drill and practice the only way to learn the multiplication tables? Today’s sites offer some interesting answers. Yes, practice is important, and you’ll find several fun ways to do so online. But having a bit of understanding is important too. For example, if you’ve already memorized 6×7=42, the commutative law of multiplication tells us you do not need to memorize 7×6=42. Read on for more helpful multiplication hints and lots of practice drills.
Got multiplication homework? The Multiplication Homework Helper applet won’t give you the answer, but will tell you if your answer is correct. Other multiplication helpers are interactive flashcards, printable and interactive worksheets, and (my personal favorite) PDF Worksheet Generator. To access the PDF Worksheet Generator, click Worksheets, and look near the bottom of the page in the left-hand column.
Dositey is my pick of the day for fun multiplication games and interactive lessons. Best click is Multiplication with Regrouping, which takes you step-by-step through two-digit problems such as 36×4 and 67x 3. Dositey also has a collection of printable worksheets for both single-digit and two-digit multiplication. From any of the worksheet pages, click on New Problem Set for a fresh set of exercises.
Natural Math: Multiplication: An Adventure in Number Sense
Join in on the conversation between a student (“There are too many multiplication facts to memorize.”) and a mentor (“If you want to know the multiplication table from 1 to 10, you may want to memorize 13 facts, at most. There are very easy tricks that will let you get the rest of the facts as fast as if you remembered them.”) You’ll learn which thirteen facts you need to memorize, and how to recall the rest of the multiplication table using fast mental arithmetic and number sense.

I enjoyed the coloring pages ( http://www.surfnetkids.com/coloring ). I help out at the local elementary school and sometimes I like to take something fun to share with the kids I read to. This will be great ! Thanks.
