Can you tell it’s nearly St. Patrick’s Day?  The children have enjoyed exploring some festive lessons during the past couple of weeks.  It is always remarkable to observe their growing proficiency as they navigate new lessons and practice skills.  It has been especially gratifying having long, uninterrupted periods of work time in the mornings.  The children have been able to achieve new levels of concentration while achieving mastery in lessons, enabling the presentation of many new lessons.
