I love this book so much that I bought it for a teacher friend. I will also keep it even though I don't teach in a classroom anymore. I did use some of the ideas (or variations of them) while teaching middle school and the effect was amazing. If you teach children, this book is for you!

One of my favorite teacher resource books. Sometimes a good laugh makes the difference between a sane and insane day.

This was more of a cutsey book to be entertained by. It made me laugh about things but didn't really provide many specific classroom-related ideas... Many of the examples that were there were for K-12 with a heavy emphasis on high school classrooms so they weren't relevant for me. I was also not overly impressed with the ideas given.

I've read this before, and it does have some fun ideas. I put it aside this time because I had other books I wanted to read before I finished this one.

Although this book had good ideas, it really didn't feel like anything new.

Most of the ideas could not be scaled down for homeschooling.
