One thing I love about this time of year is the abundance of strawberries! A few weeks ago we went strawberry picking… Twenty pounds and twenty dollars later, we did a bit of strawberry prepping! (I love this picture of Annalee! It shows her style so perfectly!) Then we did some strawberry cooking with the [...]
Right now Currclick is offering lots of neat freebies. There’s chocolate fractions, spelling, weather, addition and subtraction bingo, a Mother’s Day booklet and more. I’m off to browse now!
