This was great. I actually started using Flocabulary with my students this year because they love to sing and move. It has been helpful at building students vocabulary on different areas of study.
Excellent ideas and supportive strategies!

This was an amazing presentation and loaded with practical strategies to deal with children of trauma. This is a real issue and the presenter did a fantastic job sharing his expertise about how to respond to children in poverty.

I thought this webinar addressed many important issues and topics that are so important for educators to remember when faced with difficult situations.
This webinar was awesome! The difference in the amount of words that children who live in poverty are exposed to compared to those children from upper income homes is quite explains a great deal why children coming from situations of poverty struggle so much. Thanks for sharing!
