Hi, Teaching Friends!
I love reading comments from customers! They encourage me as I refine older products and create new ones. I especially love when customers leave comments that suggest great new ideas for using a resource.
Whether you already have 100 Riddles for the Hundred Chart or are considering buying it, I thought it would be fun to share a few of your great ideas for using it.
