Making Organization a Family Affair
Developing good organizational skills is a key ingredient for success in school and in life. Although some people seem to be born organized, most of us need to develop the routines and systems that help us to become organized. Parents will leave this session with a list of strategies they can start using immediately to help them - and their child - develop good organizational skills.

Using Storytelling to engage your child
Enjoy a session led by educator and author Gwyn Gorg based on storytelling. Storytelling is an excellent teaching strategy because stories can ignite student interest, help students create vivid mental images and activate the thinking process. Stories form a framework for connecting events and concepts. Stories provide depth to a concept going beyond a fact, a definition, or an outline of textbook material. Storytelling is magical!
