Visits/Standards

 

We aim to be a helpful tool for teachers in their classrooms. Every one of our visits have been structured so that we will help reinforce a few common core standards. We encourage our teachers to use our visits as a learning tool for their students. Now, while we do touch on certain standards in our visits, we are not trained educators. We may not fulfill all aspects of a standard but we want to help you! If you would like a prinable copy of this list, click here.

If there are any things that you do not agree with or have additional standards that we are meeting, please let us know! You can email Haley at haley@wintersetllc.com.
