HI!

Just to let you know, the Math Manipulatives hyperlink is going to the same place as the Branding Game.

Thanks!

I really like The Meaning of Food website from PBS. That website has many great ideas and fun activities. The guess the "Kitchen Gadget" is fun, but hard! I saved it to my favorites, thanks for posting!

The general index of sites from Bernie Poole is quite comprehensive! I could seriously spend hours searching through these sites. I will forward this index to my children's teachers. I know our preschool teacher often uses the Internet for ideas and can find some good information here...
