We always have room for questions, and have a few projects involving the history of language and of written language as art. The class atmosphere has an organic sense of peer mentorship. There will be room for social interaction. We always start with a check -in circle. Each child has a chance to share. The class has a comforting structure, and plenty of variety to keep it snappy. We wrap with some chat time for the kids to connect with each other. Language is a social tool, so we practice it by being social.
