iBlock comes to CBMS! A new feature in our schedules this year is the daily, 30-minute block in each core team schedule that we are calling "iBlock"....with the "i" standing for "individual".  We will be running interventions during iBlock, in areas such as math, reading, writing, organization, spelling, music, geography, and social skills, to name but a few.  Teams are focusing on the individuals on their team, and looking at individual needs to focus on during iBlock.  More on this block as the year progresses!
