Educents - Educational Materials Online

It was shared early this year by one of the members of our yahoogroups. This website offers affordable educational materials for kids online. Most of the items are sold for a cheaper price and sometimes like today, you will see some free activity ebooks that you can download.

Though I don't have kids of my own, I started collecting some of the freebies and I was thinking that I can use them as a gift for my godchildren. I can just print the activity ebooks/coloring books and compile them. It's a cheaper alternative for buying books and coloring books in a bookstore. More importantly, I was able to help the kids learn while having fun. I bet that the parents of my godchildren will be happy about my DIY gift.

Some of the free materials that you can download for a limited time offer:

Snowman Math

I Spy: Shapes
These I Spy: Shapes Brain Breaks are a great tool to get your students up and moving around the room. They also serve as a great quick assessment and review of skills: Can your students apply what they have learned by finding real objects around the room that match the skill?
