Enchanted Quest offers each student a unique pathway, and provides a construct for future problem solving.
So if you have students who need help to know:
how to practise scales…
what ‘success’ looks like…
that ‘near enough’ is not quite enough…
…Then why not take them on a magical journey through an enchanted forest in search of the
BOOK OF SPELLS?
‘Map of Thuringia, 1650.
In the holidays, my brother and I made all of the beacons out of Lego.
Many parents ask me how I get Abby to practice her scales. I go on to explain the Enchanted Forest and they immediately require your contact details!
Me to Eden: “Eden, do you realise that you’ve played your scale 16 times already this lesson?”
Eden to me: “Can I do it again?”
My student refused to leave the classroom without the map. Her sister had to carry her out!
It’s brain gym.
