The Presenter provided a variety of age appropriate activities that involved songs, stories, actions/movement, and fine motor skills. The poster was excellent. Students took it home to show their families, but will bring it back for "Special Person of the Day"

K.N., Kindergarten TeacherMadonna Catholic School

Being in the school...no bus and no worry for certain students who have trouble regulating their behaviour. This particular one was geared to this age group - used movement breaks and gave the students time to talk and share their thoughts and ideas. Many moments for them to think about themselves and what they looked like - what they liked and how they see themselves in their world. I really enjoyed my students' reactions to the whole thing...It is hard to imagine it getting any better.

This was the best field trip from Teacher's Pet that I have ever booked! The Presenter was beyond amazing and SO great with the K students.

R.R., Kindergarten TeacherDunluce School

I appreciated the variety, the energy of the Presenter and the physical activity around the room. What fun! It is nice that children can still be children with the fun of a train. I really liked the quality of the poster the children did. It was the right size, the right amount of time to spend on seatwork activities for 5-year olds and the stickers were quality additions to the poster. I like to use this activity as a culmination after doing the unit in class. Thanks.
