Les Staves Webinar Recording - Available Now

Les Staves literally wrote the book on mathematics for our most complex learners. The new edition is out and you can see the e-resources here. The book delves into instructional strategies and research that aligns nicely with the Emergent Literacy Academy held each summer here at OS with Dr. David Koppenhaver and Dr. Karen Erickson.

Here's a link to the recorded webinar. Turn on the closed captions for easier viewing. You can follow Les on Facebook with his Very Special Maths group. He has lots of videos including examples of UV light use to boost students engagement.


Happiest of holidays to you and yours. I wish for each of you some quality time relaxing with family and friends over break and looking forward to a fantastic 2019.
