  1. I remember being afraid of the dark. Now when I walk the owls keep me company. so I was interested in looking at the new book Dromedary and Camelot. I will have to invest in the book, if I don’t win it here. Add it to my wish list of books.

  2. What a awesome list of resources. I am familiar with Harrys big adventure and love it already.
    So I am going to be checking out International Animal Welfare Fund. I love to teach about animals.

    Thanks Learning Magazine for all the great resources.

  3. Dromedary and Camelot is my favorite! I would love to win this. Friendship is one of our themes in our language arts units that the Kindergarten students need more experience to learn about. This is many of their first adventures outside the home and away from family. They don’t realize that others are different than them.

  4. I’d love to have a unit on insects. While we play they learn not only about insects,habitats and how other creatures in the insect world.

  5. I like all of the resources but particularly the Animal Ambassador. We do an animal unit were the kindergarten students learn about animals. This would be a welcome addition to our resources.

  6. I think the National Geographics Kids magazine would be great to have in the classroom! Students love looking at animals-this would be perfect!
