I am sponsoring a 6 y/o girl in Rwanda and my daughter is corresponding with a 6 y/o girl in Togo. We are building up a stock of goodies to include w/their letters that we send to them. There are lots of inexpensive kindergarten workbooks available.I thought the math type might work best d/t language barriers.  Would these be appropriate? I don't want to send something below the child's learning level. I can just hear my own kids saying, "Mom, I'm not a baby!"

You could always send it and say if it is too easy, they are welcome to give it to another child in their family or at the child center who can use it.

Good idea. There are 3 other children in the home, so likely someone can use it. :)

Sally, these are such a great idea and I know a lot of our sponsor's send practice pages on different school subjects for their children. Often times, our children do not receive any type of education before entering into our program and so math worksheets will help them practice! :) You might be interested in check out our Letter Writing Ideas Board on Pinterest  too because there are a lot of fun worksheets and other fun items that might challenge and be educational for your child! 

Also just as a side note, we will make sure any items that you send with words are translated into your child's language and dialect so that they're able to understand it :).

Thanks Emily. I wondered if you would translate everything. I teach preschool/kindergarten at church and I always have extra Christian materials left over. I'll put that stuff to good use as well!
