“Just wanted to say that since I started using your material and ideas 3 or 4 years ago, the kids who started with me with stories 1-10 are now really enjoying your stories for special days, especially (and I have to admit, to my surprise!) the songs. Although it is still very much summer here, the kids loved the groundhog story, and ADORE the song!
This morning even the 7-8 year olds were hopping round like bunnies to the Easter bunny song. A week or so ago I thought it was going to be impossible to teach them ALL the prepositions from the Easter story, but they know most of them already!“
