"We have used the bag and loved it. We really liked the CD and use it during quiet time and transitions. The tree and felt letters have been used for multiple lessons. The kids were much more engaged with the story when we used it to act out. We would like to use it again next year when we don’t have so many restrictions. We came up with a lot more things to do with it."- Jeanne from Kensler Elementary (Chicka Chicka Boom Boom kit)
