  1. I look forward to using the interactive whiteboard activity Morning Circle Time with my kindergarten students.

  2. I hope we can use CD’s that we purchase (with whiteboard programs) because Morning Circle Time looks and sounds WONDERFUL! I know that my kindergartners would be so engaged watching this every morning!
