As you'll see in this Never Stop Learning report, we go back to the basics. Jenn Macintosh is using her puppet, Mother Echo, to help her first graders with their phonics lesson. The program is called "Fun"dations. It focuses on literacy and builds on the foundation skills. Educators say last year, Claxton Elementary School used the program with very positive results. Now it's being used in every elementary school in the Asheville city school system. This is the first week the students are using the program at Jones Elementary.
