Tinker Time engages Extera’s English Language Learner population through hands-on learning experiences that allow students to use their language skills in a real world setting. Teachers, likewise, grow in using new and creative teaching practices to reach all their students’ various academic needs. Students improve their language skills and confidence by participating in Creative Play lessons tailored to their learning abilities and needs.
Through Extera's Tinker Time initiative, students got to test out the newest Google Making and Science App. We got to participate in the Science at Play documentary series through the imagination Foundation. Watch what Tinker Time is like for our students!
