I read the reviews, but didn't listen to them. My mistake. This is definitely a book for elementary school classrooms.

I suspect that I am different from the intended target audience for this book in that I'm from the UK and I teach 16-19 year-olds. However, I'm a firm believer that teaching is the skill and that many activities will translate across countries, subject and ages - and this book does just that. Some of the activities are clearly aimed at young kids, but there are many activities here that can be modified in some way to become suitable for the students that I teach. Some of the activities are old favourites, but there are new ideas in here that I will definitely be trying with my students - engaging them with the lesson in a fun way is what we all want and the activities suggested in this book will do just that. Even if I've used the idea before I really like the idea of having all the ideas collected together in one book that I can return to again and again. This is one ebook that I would really like to have a physical copy of - on my desk!

I teach Latin at a high school in the US, and I found several activities and ideas that have already helped me out this semester. Some of the activities (for example, how to make a booklet out of a single sheet of paper) were things that I've seen passed around often in recent years, but there were other ideas and tips that I'd never seen before. I imagine that this would hold true for any teacher looking to mix things up a little bit in the classroom.

The instructions for the activities were very easy to follow, and I appreciated that they were simple and generic enough to be applied at any level for any subject. This would be a great book for any teacher (though probably a little more useful to Elementary and Middle School teachers), and I've recommended it to several of my teacher friends.

Jane Feber's `Student Engagement is FUNdamental' is a winner.

As a teacher of 30+ years experience, and now a Deputy Principal in a large regional P-12 School, I get to mentor many teachers at the very beginning of their careers, and I wish this type of resource had always been available to set new teachers up with easy-to-use and effective classroom activities.

Successful teaching is based on relationships - and the first part of `FUNdamental' is all about that. Quite frankly, if little is taught in the first week or two of the school year, but the students develop respect for their teacher and a sense of belonging and loyalty to their class, then the time has been well spent - because it ultimately makes my job easier.

The sections that include activities and templates are also very good. I work in Australia, where we are in the process of changing from state-based to a national curriculum - and as far as I can see, all these activities could be used within the new structure (with, perhaps, a little tweaking here and there to Australianise them).

Well done, Jane. I know where I will be pointing my new teachers this year!
