This CD is a powerful learning tool because it teaches the children through fun, upbeat music with positive easy to understand lessons. The lyrics are appealing to the children and speak to them in their terms.
What a great tool for the elementary school counselor. I have used this tool for developmental guidance lessons about manners and etiquette and the kids LOVE IT! Teachers comment that kids are humming Cool Kind Kid and doing the motions we added to the song. I highly recommend this CD to anyone working with young children.
With contemporary style and upbeat music and lyrics that children can easily put into practice, [CKK products] offer a fun way to teach manners and social skills - without being boring and uptight.
WOO HOOO, this is FAB!!
PS can I just mention how REALLY impressive all these resources are, as well as the additional teaching and skills this is setting students up with.
Cicero History programming is a wonderful change for our son. He is an avid reader of historical information, and using the computer is a nice change with videos and extras. It is not comparable with other programs-truly unique and interesting for a 12 year olds need to learn!
I love it! I've used material from it for every chapter since we received the subscription.
I really am enjoying it. I just gave a project to the students from the Units. I was concerned that the projects they had on there would work for the group of students, but they are excited about it. I really enjoy that each unit is so thorough.
Two of my classes got into Cicero for the first time for a few minutes today, and they really enjoyed what they found there. I let them just explore for a while, and most of them were attracted to the 20th century stuff like the Cuban Missile Crisis and other 20th century history that they've heard of but never studied. A few of them were looking at pages related to our current unit of study, the early Federal period. We had lots of videos and songs playing at the same time, many photos were open, so the room got a little chaotic, but it was all in good "exploration mode". The best part was that they were asking me lots of questions about what they were looking at and I was able to tell them that the answers are in the support documents. It was great!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!! As a 4th grade teacher I'm really looking forward to your new product for lower grades. But even so, I'm thrilled with the wealth of material at my fingertips now. I used 3 resources just today - Power Point, art, and article. Thank you for what you do!
Fantastic! Teachers think CICERO is awesome! Got to brag on it to principals and administrators at a district wide meeting I was asked to speak at.
