Parent Workshop Videos

The following videos are recordings of our teachers presenting at parent workshops over the past couple of years.  They are examples of reading and math lessons taught in the classrooms; therefore, they provide explanations and samples of the concepts listed in the title of the video.  Even though they are categorized by the grade level, the information is consistent and reteaches or builds on concepts from one grade level to the next.
