108 - Complex Rhyme Patterns

It’s crunch time, and the students need to finish their flow. The students get to take a field trip to re:imagine/ATL’s office to go in-depth with counting bars and complex rhyme patterns, and we break down the mess it takes to make that happen. Permission slips, transportation, building trust with parents and schools. Program Director Julie Foster-Straw joins the classroom this week to discuss navigating the mess of getting students where they need to go.
