4. Reading Lessons
I am almost ready to upload the revised sample lesson for the
Reading Lessons site. I've received very valuable feedback from
hundreds of teachers and parents, who have commented on the
original sample lesson.

If you watched the video and completed the survey, many thanks.
If you'd like to check out the original sample lesson, it's here:

The revised sample lesson will be available next week.
I'll let you know when it's ready. Don't forget, the lessons will
be free.

5. New KIDiddles Registration System
You can now download the printable sheets directly from the song
pages. You no longer have to go to the full list of all the sheets.
We had a few glitches with the new registration system, but that's
all fixed now.

If you have not yet registered:
a. You do not yet have a password but your email is in the database.
b. Fill in the "Forgot My Password" form, so that we can email your
password. Here's the link for the form:
d. You will then be able to sign-in with your new password.
e. Download as many sheets as you like directly from the song pages.

6. How Can KIDiddles be free?
I get emails every week asking how can we provide the KIDiddles
service without a fee. The answer is that KIDiddles does not make
a profit but the Google ads on the site help pay for some of the
overhead costs.

The way it works is that when an advert on the site is clicked on,
KIDiddles gets a tiny payment, tenths of a penny. Less than 2% of
the people visiting a page click on the ads, so the more traffic
we get, the more clicks, and the more income to help defer costs.

7. More Great Websites
"FREE Worksheets, quizzes, games and online practice on math,
grammar, phonics, handwriting, word search, language arts, social
studies and geography for preschool to middle school.
