Incorporating different modalities and tools in order to individualize learning, and maximize each child's potential. Striving to help each child not only meet, but exceed academic standards. What is a misunderstood learner? You may already have some ideas of your own, and even some students that come to mind. Picture a student who seems to be one way, but is actually another. Many times our students with special circumstances will behave poorly in class, or disengage from the material altogether. This student may be new to our language, have a diagnosed learning condition, or even have difficult experiences at home. Our goal is to foster literacy and provide understanding for these misunderstood learners.

S.O.L. Train Learning was created out of a desire to teach children important concepts in a fun way. When Brittany and Pam witnessed music’s ability to help children not only learn, but retain information, they collaborated on a CD that would combine fresh, fun music with important standard objectives. “S.O.L. Train: Come On and Ride into Social Studies,” will entertain both adults and children with catchy melodies and sophisticated music production. We have also incorporated songs into our emergent readers.
