My little helper woke up early this Saturday morning to come with me to the Scholastic Warehouse Sales Event. As we got into the car, she declared, "Mama, do you know what I'm going to say when I get to the warehouse? This is the life!"
Well, friends, it's hard to argue with that!
I hope you are all enjoying your summer and reading lots of books.
If you or your friends want to know more about how to support kids with reading and writing skills, please take advantage of the early bird registration and attend one of my workshops this fall. For detailed descriptions of the workshops offered and registration information, take a look here.
A few months ago, I had the privilege of presenting a reading fundamentals workshop at Adobe. This past week, I had the pleasure of being invited again, this time to present a reading comprehension workshop for parents of 2nd grade to 6th grade students.
Interacting with parents at Adobe has been amazing. They eagerly ask questions about how reading strategies would apply in their home situation. Workshop participants also contribute to the conversation by giving suggestions and tips from their own experience to their colleagues. With an environment that is supportive and collaborative, it's not a surprise that Adobe is consistently named one of Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For and People's Companies That Care, among many other accolades.
