There's Something to Learn Everyday

Everyday there is something to learn. I started reading "Alice's Farm: A Rabbit's Tale" by Maryrose Wood. I learned that a group of wild rabbits is a fluffle, and rabbit babies are called kittens. I've been having fun looking at the fluffle that visits my yard even though I am concerned about how much of my lawn they are nibbling. The crocus this spring will have to hide from the fluffle. Another thing I have recently learned is how to create custom games on This has allowed me to create some online versions of games for The Black Silk Path, such as Go Fish!, that previously could only be played offline. If you use the online games for The Black Silk Path , please return to download the updated games. Directions on how to download the game file and import it into a custom game at have replaced the "No online game available" text. Game links are available on the " Ebook Users " page. I'll leave you to explore

Official Recognition

It is often nice to receive some kind of recognition for our hard work or achievement. A smile or a "Good Job" can go a long way. I've appreciated the feedback on the Ed and Mel's Decodable Adventure books I have received. Thank you for taking the time to say something.  I am getting excited to share the third book in the trilogy. The Path's End brings resolution to the struggles Ed and Mel face. I hope it also brings encouragement to the students who read it. There are only a couple more details to finish and proof copies to double check before The Path's End is published. Through this process, I was reminded that a certificate of achievement can be a great way to celebrate the completion of a task.  So, I took a moment to ignore the dirty dishes in the sink and create certificates of achievement for the books. There are three options for each book, so you can print your favorite.  You'll notice that there is space for two names on the certificate. As &
