Let’s learn how to perform an autopsy...on everyday electronics gadgets! And then we can take all those parts to build one awesome new Frankenstein- style thing! Parents, in this camp, we’ll learn to safely take various household gadgets apart, learn what each component is/does, and reconstruct them to form new inventions.

Launching successful readers is the goal of Pathways to Reading (PTR). The model is designed to assist teachers in understanding phonemic awareness and phonics and their relationship to the development of reading and spelling, preventively and remedially, and integrate the instruction with other research-based components of fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. With a focus on student engagement, participants will learn to differentiate and pace small group instruction and incorporate Dr. David Kilpatrick’s one-minute oral PA exercises. In addition, participants will increase their knowledge base with an awareness of the recent findings on orthographic mapping and its relevance to fluent reading. PTR training is for K-2nd grade general education teachers, Title 1, Special Education, ELL, Reading Specialists, and Interventionists at all grade levels. Title III Funds May Be used for this training More
