Hi Srea ~ I am also very interested in the document you created for Grade 1. Thanks for sharing your hard work!


Thank You Suzanne for sharing! It was so kind of you. We are currently writing curriculum and this articulates what I’ve been attrmpting to do within the CAFE framework.


You’re more than welcome. I hope you will share back with us any great ideas you have!!
