BrainPoP Webinars!

In the midst of helping Louie with his homework, cleaning up after dinner, keeping Mia entertained, and watching a pile of math tests (yes, watching the pile...)  that need to be graded... I am finding a few minutes to BLOG! Because after all, I need some time to myself...

BrainPOP is offering free webinars in the month of November! This will be my first time viewing a webinar. I'm excited to see what information they have to offer!

I'm hoping to view the Engage Students With BrainPOP and BrainPOP Jr. Webinar.
