  2. Sarah and Lisa,
    Thanks for an outstanding workshop, you are fabulous! I can’t believe the amount of work you have put into this all totally awesome -to quote the kids! I am so excited to practice your ideas.
    Lisa, a quick question for you from the first room where the lady didn’t show- you mentiontioned IRN notetaking CD which is all I wrote down. Do I need to take their workshop to get it, or did you order it/ find it on line?
    I’m embarrassed to ask for anything else-but was curious as it, too, sounded interesting.
    Thanks again for all your ideas I have been teaching this curriculum for 5 years and needed to freshen my approach! Sharon

    Thanks again and have a great year!


  4. The “Fun”damentals session at the Virginia Social Studies Conference in Richmond was awesome. It was by far the best session there! I enjoyed and gained a lot from it! Both ladies were very informative and showed how to make social studies fun with lots of games and foldables!
