Easy Fridge Fun for Language Skills

If you have kids at home, chances are good they are constantly in the fridge!  Why not turn the fridge into a "language hub?"  We have a set of alphabet magnets on our fridge.  Both of my kids (15 and 10) love to create new phrases with the letters.  They have to get creative with… Continue reading Easy Fridge Fun for Language Skills
