Check it out and see how easy it could be. I know that there are great teachers out there who could take 10 minutes to write out their idea and submit – it really is that simple!
For those Primary Teachers out there, there is a request for how you might use Leap Frog in your classroom to promote literacy. If you win you get money, an IPod, and a classroom set of materials to implement it. Does this tweak your interest?
