FYI: I just uploaded a special printable Halloween Fun Kit to the Sufnetkids Printables Club that includes a crossword puzzle, word search, coloring pages, clean Halloween jokes and more. Yes, it is only available to Printables Club members, but since the ten-day Printables Club free trial is backed by our zero-risk satisfaction guarantee, you really have nothing to lose by taking a look.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled newsletter. Today is our 19th wedding anniversary! Tonight Howard and I are going out to a music club — something we very rarely do. Woo hoo!
See ya on the Net,

#2. Finally, an Easy Way to Integrate the Internet into Your Curriculum
If you know the right sites, the Internet can be a powerful blessing that sparks a passion for self-directed learning. But which sites do you recommend? How do you find them? Let me help you.
#3. Learn to Count Money
by Barbara J. Feldman
Learn to Count Money Printable (** for premium members only)
Pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters: can you count them? Can you give change? Money-counting skills require practice, and these online money-counting games make it fun.
Aplusmath: Money Flash Cards
“How much money is here?” Aplusmath’s interactive money-counting flash cards present one problem at a time, using dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies. If you prefer an interactive worksheet with ten, twenty or fifty problems on a single screen, visit http://www.aplusmath.com/Worksheets/OnlineMoney.html instead. On both pages, the coins and bills are laid out in order from pennies to dollar, making it a little bit easier to count them than if they were scattered randomly.
Family Education Network: Piggybank
“Can you choose coins that add up to an amount of money?” As coins fall from the top of the screen, click on them to reach your goal. To remove a chosen coin from your total, simply click on it again. Easy level shows the sum of your chosen coins. When playing at the hard level, you have to keep the running total in your head. The game is won when your piggy bank is full. Oink, oink!
FunBrain: Change Maker
This time you earn money in a virtual piggy bank by calculating change. “If you get the answer correct, the amount of change is added to your piggy bank. If you get the answer wrong, the correct amount of change is subtracted from your piggy bank. The more money you get in your piggy bank, the harder the questions will get.” Change Maker has four levels of difficulty (including Big Spender with purchases over $100) and five currencies: American dollar, Canadian dollar, Mexican peso, English pound and Australian dollar.
