I will be available to teach on Presidents Day, February 17th. Because many schools are off and some families travel over that long weekend, it is an optional lesson day.

Although the article is a couple of years old, research continues to support this conclusion. We read differently when we read digital media. It is important for all of us to vary our reading, and to include reading from paper books because it uses a different part of our brain.
As we assemble our summer reading lists for ourselves and our children, let's be sure to include some old fashioned paper books. 😎
