was working in a home-based birth to 3 program.
It was that experience that prompted me to contact ADVANCE

This week instead of a recipe, I would like to share a fun
lesson that expands on the apple theme from last week's recipe
post. This is a lesson I created and implemented with my occupational

How is your
school year going so far?
