Hi everyone! I've gotten two new girls in the last three weeks. The other girls have started the "someone doesn't like you" "I won't be your friend" "She said blah blah blah."

We used to do that to the picture books at the day care I worked at. We covered the edges of both covers and then did another piece along the spine.

Yes

You cut it out to make it into one continuous number line. You don't want any numbers underneath each other... you'll have a number grid for that.

I think being proactive helps a lot. I look like I'm 16 and have had quite a few people say, "You're a baby! You can't be old enough to teach." I just smile, laugh and say, "I can guarantee you I...
