Our month of March started by celebrating Dr. Seuss and spending the day in our jammies.       What a way to begin! Learning in comfortable attire…..so fun. We extended the Dr. Seuss silliness to Apple Rehab Center on Friday, March 7th. The residents had fun listening to the “Bartholemew and the Ooblek” story followed by the making of real green ooblek that we put our hands into and oozed through our fingers. This grossed out […]

The month of October has brought us closer to a “normalized” classroom. This is a Montessori term that means the students know what to do in a work environment, and realize what the expectation is for them as independent learners.
