Recent Feedback From Schools"We had 24 children ages 6-7 around a table engaged with their hands, hearts, and minds for two hours. This is not typical in any way. They were challenged, at times frustrated, but they pushed through and continued to try/succeed. They helped each other. They asked for help. It was valuable time in so many ways. Yasue took her time, and shared her skills/knowledge with us. She left many additional materials for our classroom to use. I would gladly invite her back again.
