After listening to accusation after accusation that we’re ageist,
826michigan has decided to try out Parent Workshops! And, yes,
they’re totally free!
Next Tuesday, June 13, at 4:00: Mindworks Learning develops fun and
efficient learning programs that improve memory, attention, problem
solving and reading. They also share their expertise through voluntary
presentations on a number of topics, including ADHD, helping children
read, solutions for learning disabilities and modern-day learning
through computer gaming. To sign up for this workshop, e-mail Amy.
Monday, June 19, from 5:30-7:30: This two-hour workshop is for parents
and caregivers who want to learn more about how to encourage their
student writers in grades K-12 at home. We’ll explore family
activities that promote writing as well as effective ways to respond
to children about their writing. You can register for this workshop here.
Both of these workshops will happen at 826michigan, 2245 S State
Street, in the State Technology Park. We are around back, and it
should be noted that as I type this, our building is being painted a
color I can only describe as dark-
almost looks like it’s adobe.
