Cathy Duffy Reviews

"You can easily have students from various grade levels work on these tasks--even students below sixth grade level on many of them. You can use the book for an entire school year, or use it occasionally over a few years. Take 5! might be a great resource to use in the winter months when school sometimes seems to drag everyone down. While average and bright students might well appreciate the opportunities to be creative and have some fun, you might also find these activities a helpful stimulus for the unmotivated student." - Cathy Duffy Reviews
