Students learn in a variety of ways, so it is important that we provide a multitude of activity types at their finder tips. Included in the TBLA Online Courses for students are lessons that address the auditory, visual, and tactile learners.  Be ready to color, cut, fold, build, and respond in a variety of fashions as your students progress through the Language Arts lessons.
