I recently came across this early handwriting freebie which is perfect for pre-schoolers. There are instructions that teach you how to introduce the alphabet to your pre-school child. The FREE ebook provides a writing practice worksheet for every upper and lowercase letter in the alphabet.

The website, schoolsparks.com, is perfect for parents whose children are about to attend kindergarten. There’s a school readiness assessment which focuses on fine motor skill development as well as a section on eight specific areas of child development that are critical to school success.

So, not only can you download the FREE ebook, but you can also look at all of the great information offered on schoolsparks.com.

FREE Child ID Kit

 Parenting  Comments Off
May 122011

To help promote child safety, Masonic Lodge No. 1435 will be holding a free “Child ID Kit” session this Saturday May 14, 2011 from 9:00 AM until 12 Noon.

From their website:

These kits can provide the police department with a four to six hour head start in case of an emergency because the information they need is immediately available for their use. A parent/guardian’s permission is required before we can start making a kit. The Lodge retains only the permission slip. Once a kit is completed, we destroy all information about the child. It can take up to 30 minutes to complete each kit. In order to help speed the process up we request that parents come prepared with information about their child such as: their physicians name, address and phone number; a list of their medications; height and weight; emergency contact phone numbers and, if desired, their social security number.

Location: 101 N. Allen Drive, Allen, TX 75013
