Dear Barbara,

For the last few weeks I have been working with another author on a “secret project” related to
adults returning to college. I will have more news very soon. Sorry to be so vague, but that’s all I can share at this time.

See ya on the Net,

Get Ready for Kindergarten Printable (** for premium members only)
http://www.surfnetkids.com/printables/kindergarten.pdf

August is “Get Ready for Kindergarten” month for almost two million American kids who will
be entering kindergarten in the fall. Today’s collection of websites include a mix of online and
offline activities for parents to do with their preschoolers. But remember, although worksheets
and online games are fun, reading out loud to your child is the single best way to prepare your
kids for school and learning.

CoolMath4Parents: Get Ready for Kindergarten
http://www.coolmath4parents.com/getready.htm
****
“How many M&M’s do you think are in this bag?” “How many buttons does Daddy have on his
shirt?” Math can be integrated into nearly any everyday activity you do with your preschoolers.
To jumpstart your own ideas, CoolMath4Parents organizes dozens of math-learning
opportunities by daily activity such as dressing, driving, snacking, etc. The last category, Good
Family Games, recommends half a dozen card and board games, including UNO, Yahtzee, and
bingo.

Preschoolers Today: Preparing for Kindergarten Worksheets
http://preschoolerstoday.com/resources/prepsheets.htm
****
These eight printable worksheets will help your child master important pre-kindergarten skills
such as tracing, counting, cutting, shapes, colors, telephone number and address. Each is
available in both Word and PDF format. For more on kindergarten readiness, follow the links to
“Is Your Child Ready for Kindergarten?” and try the interactive “Kindergarten Readiness
Checklist.”

Bembo’s Zoo
http://www.bemboszoo.com/
*****
“A is for antelope, B is for Bison, C is for crab. ” An amazing typographic adventure awaits you
at Bembo’s Zoo, as you watch each letter of the alphabet transform into a wild animal right
before your eyes and ears. This Flash animation for all ages is based on the book of the same
name, by graphic artist Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich. Don’t miss it!
