It's becoming increasingly clear that mental health is just as important as physical health when it comes to overall well-being. Tune in to this installment of our Avera Family Forum series to hear about the importance of the mind-body connection and what parents can do to help foster the connection in their students. https://youtu.be/JONCKy6JVZY

Last week at the Instructional Planning Center, office staff took a mid-afternoon "Try Something New" break! Fine Arts Coordinator Shane Wueben led the group in a lesson on how to play the recorder. A former educator himself, he was very patient and calm while instructing the group of adults on how to play an instrument introduced to most students in third grade. After covering the basics, the group was able to collaborate on a rousing rendition of Queen's "We Will Rock You." Even our office staff need to keep things fun sometimes!

Watching a child learn how to read can seem like magic sometimes. To see the gears turn in their heads and realize how a mess of letters turns into words, how those words become sentences, and so on. But there is a science to reading and in this episode of Teacher Talk (presented by South Dakota Public Broadcasting) our speakers discuss the science of the "science of reading."
