    What about some things for K-1 that K students could begin after Christmas? I like word study, but I am a Kindergarten teacher looking for age/ability appropriate resources for my little ones. Thanks and have a wonderful day!

      I love that idea! Thanks for sharing it…I’ll need to do some research, but I think it would be really cool. With cartoon characters, word sorts, and videos. What do you think?
