"I just wanted to pass on a HUGE thank you for the free Orange Marks the Spot resource...it is AWESOME!!
I am an elementary P.E. teacher and orienteering is something I have always wanted to teach. That said, there's always a lot on the go. Your resource helped simplify things for me and I am now maybe your biggest fan!
Since using the resource with my students for over a month, we have also went orienteering with my 3 year old son and plan to continue to do so as a family. As part of a comprehensive school health initiative, I also helped lead my schools professional learning yesterday and had our staff outside orienteering at -15...it was a blast!
