  1. The Read to Feed is a great program. I love it! I have rec’d the printed kit and it is chocked full of great lessons that teach students to have compassion for others. The expresso elementary is one I am most interested in. With all that teachers are responsible for, having a tech resource to go to in a flash would be a lifesaver and a huge timesaver. I will be signing up for the free trial.

  2. My favorite would be the Harlem’s Little Blackboard book to share with my class. I’m always on the lookout for good books.

  3. I love the Expresso Elementary Resources especially the teacher resources for learning the Alphabet. I love that they use real life pictures.

    I also love the idea of entering the Global Green USA contest. Our school could use the funds to watch us go green.
