"The three hour work period" Multiage Grouping Teach by teaching, not by correcting! Instead of correcting mistakes immediately, respect child's work as it is.
Plan individual projects to enable the child to learn in order to improve. Class Size ( from 30 to 35 children possible) ASSESSMENT There are no grades, or other ways of reward or punishment
Assessment is done by portfolios and by the teachers' observations and record-keeping. Character Education Don't say "You mustn't" to children, because they may: Loose interest
