What Others Are Saying
This program was very organized and I was impressed with the flow of the program, even while virtual. Everything was easily visible. There was a great mix of visuals, videos, etc. to support the students' learning and the content was very relatable to their age group. Thank you for accommodating the virtual needs of our students at this time. - Kindergarten Teacher, Milwaukee
Thank you! The students really enjoyed it! (The program) provided great visual aids to help them make connections to the material. I was impressed with this as an alternate option. - 3rd grade teacher, Cedarburg
We so enjoyed the field trip today, even if not in person. The kids were so excited to go outside and look for bugs. We took the magnifying glasses and bug catchers outside. I had to drag them inside after 40 minutes because they were still digging up worms. Thank you so much for the awesome program - 4K teacher, Milwaukee
Thank YOU so much! The second graders really enjoyed it! I am so glad you were able to incorporate Mr. Appleseed into the program. - 2nd grade teacher, West Bend
