    A major disappointment!

    I am an education major intent on learning as many classroom tricks and ideas as possible before entering the classroom. I bought this book online in hopes of learning exactly what this book's title promises, but ended up being extremely disappointed. Many of the tricks and ideas listed in this book are either way to complicated for the lesson's age group, involve items not normally found in the classroom, or are so outdated only the child's grandparents could solve them! Also many of the ideas listed in this book (word searches, etc...) are common and way over used anyway. I felt really stupid having paid almost $10.00 for a book I only ended up geting one or two unique ideas from. Save yourself the money and look elsewhere.
