Guest Blogger @ Learning Adds Up: Brook Peabody

100_0223 What a great day at Atlanta Bread Company in Polk County! You sure missed it if you couldn’t make it. We learned all about LAU (Learning Adds Up). Everyone needs to sign up and host a night at their school. Each school gets a free account (with four log-ins) just for signing up. What a great resourse for the Media Center, and did I say it’s FREE! Cosmeo helps students with research and it is a homework helper. If your child doesn’t know how to do division then it will tell them how step-by-step. It was a night of prizes and uber tips. It is always great to network with others and get ideas. We even had a Cosmeo kid using it at our meeting. We even had Joanne, the LAU Program Manager, on-site to tell us all about it. She was super, and her talent sure did show. If you missed this event, stay tuned for the next one.

Now back to Danielle………..

Thanks Brook! Brook FINALLY got his lab coat tonight, Autumn won a great usb pen from Learning Adds Up, and other prizes were given away. This group also gave us some great ideas on a future promotion for North Florida. I’ll announce it later this week! I think you’ll like it. :-)

    Alright Brook! Now that you have your lab coat, should I call you Dr. Peabody?

  2. Brook Peabody

    Well, I guess not. I will be humble about it.

  3. Michele Futch

    Sounds like you had a lot of fun! Hope to see you at a future event soon, Brook!

    I’m glad she didn’t mention me showing up fashionably late. Had an errand to the post office for my wife to run and some ‘issues’ at school that needed tending to. Thankfully I was able to make it in time to see everyone.

    It was great to hear about how much Cosmeo is being used in Polk County. I look forward to my first set of Family Night in December. I might even have two nights.
    I am curious to hear how others are using United Streaming with our CORE Reading series, beside jsut for science and social studies.

    This USB pen is OO7 crazy…
    It was a great time.
    What kind of excuse is the post office, Tom? Who uses snail mail?
    Who wants to bet Brook is wearing his coat right this minute?
    Hey Nate, get with me about reading!
    Thanks, Danielle…

    You are so welcome Autumn! The pen is from Joanne. For those that weren’t there – Joanne gave away a USB Pen. It’s a pen that also is a USB drive. COOL! We need to get more of those don’t we?!
