Help me give my students the potential to learn in an engaging environment after the impact of the coronavirus on learning this past year! These activity centers will focus on small group instruction, to better reach each student.
My students are hardworking and very creative! These students have a variety of unique challenges. These challenges include autism, learning disabilities, and behavioral struggles.
