We are full steam ahead for the new year. This week has been packed full of many fun and new learning experiences.
Now that we are heading into the second half of our school year we have started our breakout groups. We pull a small group of children for one on one support based on their learning goals. This week our break out groups worked on numbers from 1 to 10 using Building a Snowman Number Center (TNB).
