Did you or someone you know have Mr. Bill or Miss Ilene at Kingston Springs Elementary? Together and separately they taught the Language Arts Play (L.A.P.) class which uses hand signs for each phonetic sound and teaches kindergarteners and first graders reading and math skills through a combination of visual arts, call and response, and fun play between class and teacher. L.A.P. aims to teach kindergarteners to read by Christmas and successfully teaches fractions and multiplications tables through 3’s by the end of the year.
After 30 years at KSE, the L.A.P. class has been defunded but a local parent group wants it back.
Please let us know your success story or help with this issue by contacting Gwen Blanton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 615.604.2565. The kids love this class and they really learn from it!
