Early Learning Foundations Level 3
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 strong or struggling learner. These vital pathways can be thought of as highly developed highways moving information from the brain to the body. The neuro-educational approach is not workbook page driven, it is brain development driven.
- Using ELF 3 at a slower pace is also highly effective for those with learning challenges or developmental del ays.
Included in ELF 3:
Student Workbook (additional workbooks purchased separately)
Flash cards including Digit Span Cards level 7
Visual Math Steps 1-14 are covered in this level of Early Learning Foundations as well.
