    I am responsible for teaching reading and social studies next year. I will definitely use kidspiration to introduce, do a set, and culuminating activity.

    I will use the Kidspiration ideas for introducing and reviewing topics in math, science, social studies, and reading. I will also use the pre-made items to practice these in class. I can adjust some of these to do whole group instruction.

    I will use this program to create various activities dealing with shapes and patterns. I like the voice recording feature because I will be able to read to the students who may be struggling readers.
