I really enjoyed this and learnt so much. My greatest piece of learning was around the myth busters and the how to implement this teaching into my classroom space. Ngā mihi Emma

Thank you for this amazing learning opportunity Emma. This webinar was well paced, extremely informative and will change my literacy practice with the students I work with. As a TA I am looking forward to making a travelling sound wall to use as I move between learners.
