"Spiders! And Pumpkins! And Bats! Oh my!" Join us via Adobe Connect and experience our virtual lesson for third graders where we use SOL-based hands-on activities that capture your students' imagination. We'll take you step-by-step through a one hour virtual lesson that focuses on scientific investigation, unique physical adaptations of bats and spiders, along with spider webs and food webs, and don't forget the pumpkins! We will explore plant life cycles and seed dispersal too. A class that creeps and crawls and, in the end, grows on you!Please, only 2 classes per school per session!
Picture a lazy summer day in your mind's eye and you are likely to see children building tree forts and go carts, or designing telephones and musical instruments from boxes and cans. Making, tinkering, and engineering are powerful learning experiences for humans; encouraging creative problem solving and collaboration. Sylvia Libow Martinez and Gary Stager, Ph.D. believe that by bringing the maker movement into our classrooms, teachers can create a mindset for learning powered by their students' personal expressions of intellect. Come join us for lively online discussions as we delve deeper into the maker movement and its potential impact on student performance and teaching practice. All sessions will take place through our Google Classroom platform. For your convenience, the book study will be conducted asynchronously with convenient access for participants.

It's time to dust off those math manipulatives that have been languishing in the classroom closet and reimagine how these powerful tools can be used to ignite your students' interest in and understanding of math concepts. Imagining the Math Manipulative Ladder will introduce K-8 teachers to the power of making math visible through math manipulatives. See how the same tools can be used at the elementary and middle school grade levels. Our first class meeting will be face-to-face with the remainder of the classes being delivered virtually. For your convenience, our virtual sessions will be conducted asynchronously with easy access for participants.
