From Mrs. Pizzo's Workshop

A: Libraries are a wonderful and important part of every community. For this answer I reached out to Liz Breed, Michigan e-library coordinator, to offer suggestions.

From Mrs. Pizzo's Workshop

A: Pent up energy is a common problem for all learning environments. Don't forget to include physical activity throughout the day.

From Mrs. Pizzo's Workshop

A: Math is everywhere. Although new math can be difficult for many parents, reviewing foundational math skills your children have already learned is a much easier task.

From Mrs. Pizzo's Workshop

A: Take a deep breath and know you are now and have always been your child's best teacher.

From Mrs. Pizzo's Workshop

A: Although a difficult task, motivation can be found by turning a child's learning toward what interests them most.

Notes from Mrs. Pizzo's Workshop

A: No matter the age or development level, the best way to continue to support your child’s reading growth is by reading actual books.
