While there, I observed her students working in pairs to compete for points as they reviewed material for an upcoming exam. I was captivated by how enthusiastic the students were and how engaged they were in the activity. Boom Bags, as she called them, are an excellent strategy for reviewing material prior to an

It is a lovely way to not only celebrate Advent, but teach your children what Christmas is all about. It is designed for preschoolers through early elementary aged kids. But truth be told, there are
