Thoughtful and enthusiastic as always!

This group of ladies does a phenomenal job exposing us to research-based techniques to use with struggling learners. Fun to listen to (engaging voices!) and chock-full of useful information for anyone who wants to partner with a child to advance reading and writing skills.

Love these women!!!!

As I’ve hyper-ventilated through some learning challenges in our homeschool, the Rooted in Language approach has been my reassuring paper bag. I’ve taken classes online taught by Rita, Moira, and their crew, and I’m so excited that they’re podcasting now.
Press play. Take deep, slow breaths. You’ve got this.
