Joyze herzog is great. Her scardey cat program talks to all the senses and that really helps to keep the info in. As far as teacher work, not that much. They listen to an audio. They write some words in salt or sand. they have workbooks and play games. Just go through what they are going to do for the week, or the day so your not surprised by anything.

I don't know anything about the dancing bears, sorry.

Alphabet island Ive heard good things about too. I'm not sure how it works with special children though.

If you can, get Joyce's books on Special Education. They are wonderful!
