I think having any of these products would be a huge help to her and her students. Thank you for the opportunity!

    I love that my daughter's teacher loves to take the kids outside and show them nature and ideas, instead of teaching from a book! They get so excited about things when they are out doing instead of just sitting.

I've so enjoyed the privledge of being room/art mom for my son's 1st grade and hope to do the same for his 2nd grade class in the fall. I would love to win this for his teacher and for our home to share with others. Thanks!
