I like those fibonacci blankets! I’m pretty new to the math blogosphere myself, but am looking for math teachers or homeschooling parents who have some experience with math curriculum in elementary schools. I’d consider you, Sol, as a professional on the subject and would be keen to hear your thoughts, positive or negative about my site, mathworksheetwizard.com. I’m pretty much finished with kindergarten math worksheets, and am about to start on elementary material. I’m not a math teacher, though, so if you think I’m heading in the wrong direction, please let me know!
