We immediately found that their teacher, Elizabeth, enriched all our lives, not just the boys, but teaching me (Mom) as well! Most inspirational are her kinesthetic learning techniques, using movement to facilitate learning (great for boys!). She also incorporates a lot of art and construction activities. This made potentially chore-like tasks, such as reading sight words and practicing handwriting, actually seem like fun.
I have continued with a weekly session – even into first grade.
It’s hard to quantitively evaluate the boys’ achievements when kids differ so much developmentally in these early years. However, the goal is to keep the boys on course, happy and motivated about school and learning, and this seems to be working out! Elizabeth’s reports and assessments are also extremely detailed. I feel secure in the knowledge the she would quickly spot any areas of concern.
