What educators are saying

I loved this resource for our Community Helpers theme. I used this for circle and center times. The activities were great for my preschoolers to do during centers!!
I love the awesome colors and artwork on all of these units. It helps to grab the attention of the kids and make it more interesting. This just added to and made what I have that much better.
