    I liked all your additional resources. I enjoyed the site with all the quotes from early childhood contributors. I enjoyed the video of Howard Gardner on the multiple intelligence theory. I think it is important to have different people’s perspectives. I liked how many resources you provided.

    Thank you for sharing your resources. I am particularly interested in the ones on Early Intervention since I do not have a lot of experience in that area. I also enjoyed the link to the quotes which you provided.

    I loved your link to the Howard Gardner website. His theories on early childhood development are so inspirational to me. It is so important to remember that everyone has their own strengths and learns in their own way. I had never visited his website before but now I have it bookmarked. Thanks!

The Mailbox resource has such great information and thank you for the reminder for this upcoming school year. An excellent magazine chalked full of ideas, songs, activities, and theme units!
    I will be adding to my resources.

    Thank you,
