    As all Shelly does, this webinar was fantastic. One thing I have to mention is that here in Argentina, teachers don't have one classroom for her/his own, instead, teachers move around the school. Therefore, sometimes it is hard to take all Shelly mentions with us! Thanks for all the rest of the tips! Smiles, Maria :)
