In our last blog post we shared with you how we came to know about March’s featured female, Katia Krafft, She was introduced to us by Ellie F, a subscriber, who wrote to us last year and asked us to do a crate about Katia. We were so inspired by Ellie and then by Katia’s life that we knew we had to share Katia’s story. In the March activity book we shared an abbreviated interview we did with Ellie and we wanted to share the rest of it with you! So, GIRLS CAN! community, meet Ellie!Read More

We are committed to celebrating Black women all year long and not just in February because Black history is history. But, February is Black History Month and we never pass up a chance to celebrate and share about some amazing women! Every year in school, we remember particularly learning about Harriet Tubman & Rosa Parks in February. THESE WOMEN WERE AMAZING and definitely deserve to be remembered for their impact on history. But, they aren't the only women whose stories deserve to be told. It's time to also learn about Josephine Baker, Madam CJ Walker, Ida B. Wells, and many other amazing women who we never met in school. So, let's get learning about these incredible women all month long with our FREE printable memory game for Black History Month!

At GIRLS CAN! CRATE, we know the importance of building girls’ confidence and love for math from a young age. Studies show, despite performing just as well as boys in the subject, girls exhibit greater anxiety toward math. This could certainly be one reason girls are less likely to pursue careers with a heavy math focus as they grow. To help overcome this, girls need exposure to relatable role models in math fields (like the women we celebrate at GIRLS CAN! CRATE) and encouragement from grown-ups to pursue the subject.
So, we were super jazzed when we connected with Janice, a local Tucson woman (GIRLS CAN! CRATE is headquartered in Tucson, Arizona), who was about to launch an Indiegogo campaign to grow her company, Page A Day Math. Years ago, when Janice’s daughter was in second grade, she was surprised to learn that she struggled with basic math facts. So, to help her daughter succeed, she created her own program to practice math skills every day - and she saw her daughter’s confidence and abilities grow greatly. Eventually, Janice would become a middle school math teacher. She saw first hand the need for kids to build greater foundational math skills, and how this lack led to frustration, anxiety, and feelings of failure as students grew.
So, being a fearless go-getter, Janice created a solution and designed “Page A Day Math with the Math Squad!” This innovative, incremental math program “introduces new topics while continually building and improving on existing math facts knowledge to improve fluency and to build a strong academic foundation for lifelong learning.” Oh, and it’s also super fun - her animal math squad joins kids as they work through each book, sharing tips, jokes, and letting kids track their own progress to success!
