"Children have become familiar with the new words and they use them in their vocabulary. It has enlightened me as a teacher to think outside the box. I use the materials and the ideas not just in science but also in every area. It helps with math, they are able to count better. They love counting.
I love the idea that children can go to the science area and explore. I'm an ECHOS fan! "

"I like the way that ECHOS gets kids in a group and kind of gets them to help one another without even realizing it. And I also like the way that it gets them involved in trying new things that they wouldn't have done before, and just really getting the kids into science and math together.
I just think it was a short two years, you know what they say "time flies when you are having fun." I think this year we did a really good job with kids and they really learned alot and ECHOS played a big role in that. I think it was just awesome. "
