Ingham Impact Podcast
Featuring Core Vocabulary
Our new Heartwood School Principal, Alexis Adams, helps us learn about CORE Vocabulary; it   is a small set of simple words, in any language, that are used frequently and across contexts. CORE makes up about 75% of what adults and children actually say. Our Heartwood staff have implemented CORE for the last two years with wonderful results. Great job, team! #InghamImpact
