## Shoeboxes for Soldiers

While troops receive the very basic necessities like meals and shelter from the U.S. military, we want to boost morale with practical tokens of kindness in the form of snacks, personal care items, entertainment and thank-you notes to men and women stationed around the world.

If you are able to help support our troops we are collecting items until December 4th. Let's help make a difference today!

## Ways to Support at Home

Below is a great math game you can play easily in the car. "I'm Thinking of a Number"

What to do

1. Let your child think of a number between a stated range of numbers while you try to guess the number by asking questions. Here is a sample conversation.
Child: I am thinking of a number between 1 and 100.
Parent: Is it more than 50?
Child: No.
Parent: Is it an even number?
Child: No.
Parent: Is it more than 20 but less than 40?
Child: Yes.
Parent: Can you reach it by starting at zero and counting by 3's?
Child: Yes.
(At this stage, your child could be thinking of 21, 27, 33, or 39.)
