      I like the choice provided during this activity – How many cards do I want to trade and who is willing to trade with me? When someone has his/her letters needed, he/she can help locate letters for others – they look at trades of others in order to find resources needed by others.

        Yep, Chris, choice is one of those elements essential to the success of a program to my way of thinking. Coupled with liberal doses of fun and interaction, you can’t go wrong.
