  36. I love how the Bookshelf is organized, but since you’re asking people to put all kg and preschool stuff in that category, we need a OTHER or “IN GENERAL” category there for stuff like Unit Studies, Theme Based Studies, General Kindergarten Strategy, etc.

    And in OTHER we really need an OTHER section *grin*. Others categories I would have there is PLANNING, and Educational Practice and Philosophy.
