Product Reviews

I have had a hard time tracking this book down! I purchased this book and immediately other teachers starting borrowing it! I finally realized that keeping track of it was going to be difficult so I ran off card sets for teams on card stock, laminated them and had students cut them out and bundle them into team sets of cards. I did this for each set of questions and now I have them ready to go whenever I want to use the questions. I just keep hoping that someone will return my book soon so that I can begin to use some of the blackline masters for individual worksheets. Maybe I need to chain it to my desk?

I can see how this book could transform a classroom into a civil, kind, caring place to live and learn. I purchased this book because I wanted to be able to give students the tools they needed to help me foster a more pleasant classroom to come to each day. It has certainly turned into that sort of place for me and for the students.

Because of the great questions this book contains, children have had practice in using personal and social skills that will take them far in life. Thanks again!
