Confessions of an Overworked Mom has some great materials to download and print currently on her site. I first noticed the Chimpanzee Worksheets – download Here and love them. You can make an activity book out of all the great sheets (they include dot to dots and What’s the Difference).

About Ellen Christian
Ellen is a busy mom of two teenagers who left the corporate world in 2008 to focus on a more eco-friendly life. She lives in rural Vermont where she juggles family, two blogs and a career in social media.
As I looked through the site I also found a review of Bilingual Me (here). I really believe it’s important for kids to learn a second language. I studied Spanish and French in school and really wish I remembered more of what I learned. I’ve been trying to learn Italian off and on, but as we get older it’s tougher to learn another language. I would love to be able to go to another country and order lunch without having to have a translator along for the whole trip. I visited China a few years ago – we went to Beijing and Xiamen and I really wanted to visit the Ancient Observatory. I found a translator and still had trouble, apparently Ancient Observatory isn’t a common request. Learning another language gives you the ability, if not to have the right word, to at least come up with a description that will explain what you want to see. I think my translator and I were able to get around to it with a map and me pointing to where I wanted to go – which luckily was labeled on the map in English and Chinese.
Now my oldest has taken – Chinese, Japanese, and Latin. I wasn’t really able to help him with these languages, but I am glad he studied a few languages to add to his studies.
