SPEL-Time is Speech and Emotional Learning Time!  This is a co-taught inclusion program implemented in grades Kindergarten and Grade 1 by Erin Fruci, Speech/Language Therapist and Jennifer MacLea, School Psychologist which incorporates the We Thinkers! curriculum designed by Michelle Garcia Winner, as well as other research-based practices. In alignment with district and curriculum standards for Social Emotional Learning (SEL), during SPEL-Time students will develop necessary social/emotional skills in order to become effective communicators, collaborators, and problem solvers!
