The concept of short activities which can serve as "fillers" and can make transitions and waiting times more pleasant and productive is an excellent one. Teachers will welcome these 500 great ideas, and will build their own "repertoire" from these suggestions."—Education Coordinator, Project Head Start, Detroit Public Schools
