Early Learning Foundations Level 2
Early Learning Foundations does include key math skills, but one of the main goals of the program is neuro (brain) development. Strong pathways in the brain can mean the difference between a skillful or struggling learner. These vital pathways can be thought of as highly developed highways moving information from the brain to the body.
“Neuro-pathways” are essential for success in school and life!
With strong "neuro-highways", children can:
· Follow directions
· Stay on task Organize thoughts
· Retain information
· Develop fine and gross motor skills
· Use phonics
· Really enjoy learning!
Early Learning Foundations (ELF) actually prepares the brain for academics and teaches basic math concepts to early learners with a multi-sensory method. ELF 2 picks up where ELF 1 left off; so if your student already knows how to write numbers, knows basic shapes, and understands one-to-one relationships, then you can begin with Level 2. Otherwise, you may want to look at Level 1 for a firm foundation in math concepts.
ELF is also highly effective for those with learning challenges or developmental delays.
