I'm in agreement with emotional development and social skills are essential for school readiness. They are essential to students' daily needs at school. Great training.

Great information shared and ideas that I will incorporate into my PreK 4 Classroom
Excellent webinar topic. I've had students in STEM activities that were ESL and they did great! They made a plan, built the plan out, and won the district competition!

Super informative. Thank you.
There were great ideas here, but I felt there was 97% of the time spent on STEAM, and barely 3% on actually how to BUILD empathy. I think the title of the webinar should be altered a little. I do not want to sound as though the STEAM ideas weren't great, they were.

I feel the attention spans are shorter as electronic devices become more important and prevelent in the homes.
