Hi. We received the materials kit (yay!), but I'm having trouble matching several (unlabeled) bags of supplies with the correct lessons. I assumed we'd just figure it out, but today for the Firefly unit I see we need glow-in-the-dark paper, and I can . . .

The phases of the Moon worksheet page 89 is incorrect showing new moon as a sliver. New moon should be no moon at all visible. Is there a replacement worksheet anywhere?

The link for the reading rainbow show doesn't work. I tried numerous times to getting it to work and kept saying wrong plug in or something to that affect. Youtube makes you pay too. Just easier to go on Amazon prime to pay the $1.99 for the show. Sh . . .
