Everyone learns a little differently and because of that we have lots of strategies to facilitate learning at F2W. Some kids are visual and just need to see what to do next. They tune out your words, but they are watching, watching, watching. Others look in every direction but the direction in which you are pointing. You begin to feel like they aren’t paying attention, but they hear every single word and nuance. We are often shocked when a kid who didn’t seem to be listening at all deftly turns and does a challenging learning activity with ease. The hands-on, kinesthetic learners learn best by doing. They aren’t afraid to make mistakes for that’s the way they self correct and learn more. We call ourselves a CASUAL learning environment, because we want to be a place where kids want to come to learn. We want them to challenge themselves and each other. And they do!
