COMMUNITY UPDATE

What's Happening at the Co-op...

Please join us in giving a hearty Co-op "Welcome!" to 343 new homeschool families in the last week!

Contest Winner:  Congratulations to our Math Month contest winner, JackieL, who won a $50 Amazon gift card for sharing with us what she does to make math fun for her kids:

"We make math fun by playing board games like Budget, Discount, Grocery Cart and Prime Climb. We also make sure we work on mathematical thinking and not just calculations. We play SET and do Sudoku regularly. We also bake, and sew, comparative shopping at the grocery store, square foot gardening has a ton of math involved, we also put things together, whether it's LEGO or furniture from IKEA :). We try to make math relevant to the real world." To read more Teaching Tips, click here.

FREE WEBINARS

Building a Reading Brain - Weds., 4/17, 11 AM PT

Building a Reading Brain

Reading is not hard-wired in our brains. Everyone who learns to read has to build the mental pathways that enable reading to happen. Join Betsy Hill, neuro-educator and President of BrainWare Learning Company for a webinar exploring the what is often considered “the basics” of reading – decoding and fluency and comprehension – as well as “the even more basic basics”– the cognitive processes that support reading. Finally, we discuss the stages of learning to read and how to support emerging readers.

Click here for more details about this and other upcoming webinars and to register.
