With the summer approaching, many parents want to know ways to bring enriching learning experiences into the home. This talk is NOT about a bunch of worksheets, but instead, ways to naturally incorporate enrichment into your daily routine. From the time the family wakes up, to PBL lunch, car rides, and family movie night with Depth & Complexity--these are some tested ways to bring learning home. We'll even throw in some some suggested tech apps, for when the heat index is too high to geocache! Join us Tuesday, May 9th from 6-7pm, to learn the Top 10 Ways to Bring Learning into Your Home. Hands on Science stations will be available in the cafeteria for kid-care.
