Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits: Math Tools for Reference!

    What would be an appropriate 4th to 5th grade Math Tools? Because different countries have different pace and I don't really want to send a multiplication guide when my sponsored child is already learning Algebra, or vice versa. Any good \website suggestion to look this up?

    Hananiel Setiawan you are right, different countries have a different pace, and each individual child learns at a different pace too! My best suggestion would be to ask your sponsored child what they are learning in math, then you can tailor what you mail to what they are currently learning. - Yvonne :o)

    I would love to send this to my child as her favorite subject is counting but I'm worried about it being in English instead of her language.

    Jeanette Hargis that is a great concern! The translators do their best to translate as much as possible for the children. Maybe just send the items with numbers like the rulers and the number charts. - Yvonne :o)

Similar to color by numbers, this is color by letters! Help kids with letter recognition with this fun printable.

Compassion Crafts: A Photo Album


Jean Marie shared this idea with us: One of my most cherished possessions is an autograph book that I got when I was 10 years old. Since all autograph books are hardcover I couldn’t mail it to my sponsor child so I decided to make her one! I attached photos of my autograph book in her letter and explained what they are and how to use them. I used scrapbook paper of various patterns, a hole punch, some stick-on letters.
