And just like that, August is half-way over. I hope you’ve enjoyed your summer and are looking forward to back-to-school season!
See ya on the Net,

Kindergarten Readiness Printable(** for Premium Members only)
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.
Created by an elementary school teacher, ABCYa! provides free, online Flash games for use in a web browser, and paid apps for your phone or tablet. The Pre-K collection includes games such as Alphabet Bingo, Birthday Candle Counting, Connect the Dots, and Letter Tracing.
Count Us In
This collection of fifteen number games from the Australian Broadcasting Company is terrific; I only wish they had more descriptive titles, and some sound or music. For counting beginners, games one, five and eight are my favorites. All the games are available for free download, so they can be played offline on either a Mac or Windows computer. For a description of each game, click on the yellow “games” menu item.
Kids Learning Station
Kids Learning Station offers hundreds of free printable worksheets for preschool and kindergarten, including Basic Concepts, Reading, Shapes, Colors, Numbers, Writing, Alphabet, and Math. The worksheet thumbnails take a few seconds to load when you visit a category page, so just take a deep breath and have a bit of patience.
