|Here's what others are saying about our programs||
The program was GREAT! The presenter did such a great job adding humor in and making it fun for the kids. They really enjoyed it! The materials sent by Janet prior to the video conference was really helpful. Went through the vocabulary and handouts with the kids before hand. 4th Grade Teacher
Very well done and worth the time and money. A great learning tool for a very big subject. 4th Grade Teacher
This was an excellent program. The best video conference I have ever seen!! Absolutely. It was a wonderful program for 4th graders studying CA history. 4th Grade Teacher
The interactive experience of the program kept students engaged and highly entertained. Father Serra presented textbook facts and details in real world situations that surpassed an average social-studies lesson plan. The interactive experience is a big plus. Students appreciated another opportunity, such as this program, to collect even more information for their assigned California Missions projects. 4th grade Teacher
This program will offer historical studies for 3rd and 5th grades as well. Perfect for Common Core. The program creates connections through real-world scenarios.
