My personal teaching style is literature based lessons with hands-on active strategies. I feel children learn best when you use multiple strategies with all learning modalities. I love to involve children with games to teach skills. They love coming to my Title 1 reading class and opening with a quick skills game. Learning can and should be fun to be relevant!
