Upcoming Parent Workshops
January 22 at 6 pm
Cultivating Kindergarten Writers
Our own sponsor teacher, Megan Schneider, who has many years of experience as a kindergarten teacher, will show us how to take our kindergarteners from the beginning stages of writing (ie drawing pictures to express an idea) to writing sentences on their own.
Zoom Meeting ID: 358 714 1535
January 29 at 6 pm
How to Make Social Studies Come Alive with History Unboxed
Stephanie Hanson, an Educational Outreach Specialist with History Unboxed, will be talking about the science behind the importance of hands on learning and will share how to use hands on learning to make social studies exciting.
Zoom Meeting ID: 358 714 1535
We'd love to have you attend the live zoom but as always, this workshop will be recorded and you can find it here (along with all the other recordings of past parent workshops!)
As we plan for next school year, we want to hear from you. Tell us what needs you have as a homeschool family.
Writing Workshop for Parent-Teachers
FPCS has an exciting series of parent workshops to share with you: writing workshops that equip you to teach your child to write a strong paragraph! There are 5 videos in this series - the first two videos are lengthy, but definitely worth the time investment, with the final three videos taking less time to work through. The Workshop is designed to build as it progresses, following the order of videos starting with #1 and ending with #5 is highly recommended. (Step up to Writing documents referenced in the videos are downloadable PDF files below)
Paragraph Video #1: Paragraph Outline
Paragraph Video #2: Topic Sentences
Paragraph Video #3: Making Your Writing More Interesting With the 3 E's
Paragraph Video #4: Transitions
Paragraph Video #5: Conclusions
