Reading and writing in Spanish. This program offers a process for the teaching and learning of reading and writing in which special attention is paid to the development of creativity through manipulative activities, respecting the different ways in which children mature and the diversity in the classroom, so providing a contextualized, manipulative, experience-based approach to reading and writing.
A method designed to teach children and provide them with strategies that enable them to carry out day-to-day tasks competently and skillfully. The aim is for them to be able to analyze and solve mathematical situations within a particular, practical context so that by analyzing this context they can mobilize all their resources to solve the problem successfully.
