Using building blocks and your imagination can be hours of fun. Paco built a tower that was 10 blocks high this week! It took a lot of time to make it that high without tipping over, but he kept at it and made it to his goal. Do you like to build things? You don't have to use blocks to build! You can use lots of different items. Cardboard boxes, lunch boxes, or even books. These things paired with your imagination and you could build almost anything. Check out Paco's Building Block Challenge to get some ideas.

Tires for automobiles are very important, you might even say they make the world go 'round! What a great day Paco had last week at his friend Ace's tire shop. He helped change a tire on a car. It was a great sense of accomplishment. After Ace got Paco's postcard this week he called to explain the lug nuts on the wheel. Paco loved the word lug nut. Isn't it great? The lug nut actually goes on a bolt to hold the wheel on the car! It acts as fastener, or connector. Paco just loves to learn new things!
