Even in Florida, the winter weather keeps us inside some days and we love to find new ways to entertain ourselves. This fun crossword puzzle from Education.com is perfect for my six year old girl. She sees me and her Copah doing crossword puzzles and often wants to help. She is also really excited about reading, vocabulary, and spelling. This will be perfect!

Our philosophy

Proven learning approaches

Teaching is one of the most challenging and complex jobs on the planet. Our digital resources, tools, and learning materials are developed by educational experts to incorporate leading pedagogical practices. They are useful in any type of teaching moment and many can be used to support national education standards.

Empowered educators

From school teachers and tutors to home schoolers and parents, engaged adults are the key to unlocking each child’s potential and drive to learn. We empower all kinds of educators to teach kids by providing the best educational resources in any form or device to be used at home, at school, and everywhere in-between.

Unique experiences

There is no such thing as “one size fits all” in education; each educator and child has unique challenges and goals. We celebrate the diversity of our users by offering differentiated resources that can meet a wide range of educational needs – and raise kids’ confidence in learning.

Conscientious and supportive

We continue to provide academically sound content of the highest caliber and welcome input from our users as we address issues of equity, diversity, inclusivity and representation. Since we know there are many different approaches to teaching and education, we develop our materials to complement these different philosophies across subjects and grades.

Holiday Cards from Purple Trail Bring Joy

It’s that time again, when we start to think about sending Holiday cards out to our loved ones and friends. I am one of those  who will never resort to sending e-cards, posting on Facebook, or dropping this tradition all together. People love getting mail. And I love sending it.

After a few minutes on PurpleTrail.com, there are already a few characteristics that stand out over other sites like this:

  • innovative designs and shapes
  • unique color themes
  • large selection
  • affordable prices
  • and since my favorite color is purple, they had me at their name 😉

The process looks simple and fun. You can narrow down your choices with categories like Family, Pet, Vintage, Accordion, and Trifold. You can create your own design from scratch or use one of theirs. I predict that my online card design company will change this year.

Here are some of my favorite holiday cards designs:
