Quotes from this Episode:  

“Kids need to write on paper and there’s a special connection between the kinesthetic motion of writing and brain development and information recall.” Karen Calder, Executive Director, Classroom Central

“One of the challenges our students have is reading. A lot of the kids we serve do not have books at home for reading. We are trying to figure out how we can work with school districts and community partners to ensure that children that need books and that want new books at home can get them.” Karen Calder, Executive Director, Classroom Central
