How to Teach Writing Effectively
January 25, 2020
10 – Noon
Are You Struggling to Teach Your Child How to Write?
· Teaching writing and learning to write doesn’t have to be complicated. Effective writing follows a specific pattern, and in order to be successful, you just have to know the pattern.
· At this brief workshop, I’ll teach you the method to demystify this pattern so you can quickly become an expert on proper writing structure.
· When you leave, you’ll be able to teach your child how to write a clear cohesive paragraph and/or essay.
· No more frustration — only success!
LIMITED SPACE! RSVP by calling EIE or Greg Baran directly.
January 25, 2020 / 10 – Noon/ Adults: $10 – Students: $5

We will be getting a guided tour of The Guide Dogs of America facilities. We will have a presentation, a video, and get to see the kennels. We will also get to meet a trainer and their dog. Hopefully even see the puppies. There are many ways to support GDA; if possible, we would like to have each family bring a dog toy for the puppies that are in the kennels -please no edible toys as they are on a specific diet.
