About the Contributors

"Elementary teachers are known for their special days, ideas, and projects, yet they seldom have time to share them with other teachers. Thanks to Ms. Stone, this highly practical resource will be used with confidence knowing these terrific ideas are shared by some of America’s best teachers." 

David M. Eldridge, Executive Director
The National Teachers Hall of Fame

"Using the best teaching practices among the United States’ premier elementary school practitioners, Randi Stone has compiled a teacher’s treasure chest! Her collection is a potpourri of learning activities that swell imagination, ignite teachers, and empower learners. These activities demonstrate the connectivity and integration necessary for students to become lifelong learners. This book is a priceless tool not only for teachers, but also for mentors and administrators whose responsibilities are to provide professional growth."
