Customer Reviews

Based on 2 reviews

We used the handy grammar materials in Sticky Ideas: Winter to review subjects, verbs and adjectives and then introduce adverbs with my 6 and 8 year olds. So many payday moments . . . they remembered N/V/Adj and were able to quickly develop an understanding of adverbs as they go on the verb mitten. Love being able to put all these resources to use!


My child loves the sticky ideas packet. Not sure why we didn’t try this sooner!
