My ILM'er loves racing his cars around the tracks I create. He is fascinated by the moon and stars, and we're working on spelling his name. This track includes his name, a word that begins with the same letter (Moon!), shapes and colors to count and identify, and the phases of the moon. The book is a perfect complement to the track.

This is a compilation of inspiring ideas I've seen on the community board. My ILMer loves cars and trucks. He knows colors and numbers but not letters. This project has a road that spells his name, cars and trucks for him to color and paste below their names, a variety of lines for him to trace, magnetic letters that spell his name, and magnetic numbers to count the letters.
