Count on it!

Remember this?

Search YouTube for Sesame Street and you have hours of fun and language for kids. Meanwhile, the man who was the puppeteer for the count died recently which led the BBC to compile this whimsical article on the Count and numbers in general. Something here for various classes.

For some more serious statistics on how the recession is hitting education as we go back to school in Southern Spain check this article in Spanish.

Interestingly, when money gets tight first to go are the technology inicitiatives: no more notebooks for 5th level primary students. I would imagine training on how to use / teach with the technology is also out the window. Back to the chalk board and count your luck if you actually still have an IWB and got some training in how to use it.
