"Love these! My kiddos are practicing important skills at home!"

From me: :) "As a mom of an incoming Kindergartener, I created these skill building placemats just because I thought they'd be cool... but I became SOLD on them when I realized how easy it was for me to discover which shapes, numbers, and letters my daughter was getting stuck on (Besides the usual "tricky teens" and a few letters, there were some surprises for me! Yikes! She didn't know what a rectangle was?! Time to get serious!). ;) We kept her placemat at our kitchen table and it only took a moment for me to quiz her and work with her everyday. Seeing the placemat there reminded me to ask her about things. She's made huge progress in a short time. I knew if it was helpful for ME (as a Kindergarten teacher who's been teaching for almost 20 years), it'd definitely be useful for other parents, too! AND of course I got excited about how much it could help me as a teacher if my students and their families had an easy way to work at home, too! So I made placemats for all my incoming students and I'm sharing everything with you here so YOU can help you kids, families, and even yourself, too!"
