Town Hall is now preparing Welcome Kits for new families that are moving into our community.

These new families are looking for a new EVERYTHING!

Town Hall contacts these new families each week as soon as they move into their new home.

These new families will find new places to eat, work out, wash their car......they need a new Hair Salon, Auto Repair Shop, Dry Cleaner, Pet Groomer, Day Care Facility, Florist, Nail Salon, Pharmacy......you get the idea. They are actively seeking new local businesses and creating new purchasing patterns. They will become someone's next new local, loyal customer.

Town Hall will direct them to you before your competition even knows they are here.

Since our Welcome Kits are exclusive, and we can only accommodate one business per category, I would ask you to kindly let me know if you are interested in being featured in our local Welcome Kits.

I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail.

Please reply to this email with your availability or call me at your earliest convenience.

For a faster response, or if you prefer, feel free to text me on my cell which is listed in my signature.

Thanks.

Abacus Mental Math, Grade Level Math & Language Arts (Creative Writing) classes for kids 5-12 years. Visit our website www.komodousa.com for details.

"Mental Math without tears" - With Komodo's personalised approach, your child will learn to solve complex problems in her head without any calculators. And with speed and accuracy. Our students start learning on the Japanese Soroban abacus and rapidly learn to visualize a problem and make a mental image of the abacus. In a few weeks, they learn to do problems mentally without relying on abacus. "Komodo's Language Arts (Creative Writing)" program is intended for Grades 1-5. The goal of this teacher-led program is to nurture reading and writing proficiency through theme based instructions. "Komodo's Grade Level Math" program is intended for Grades 1-6. The goal of this teacher-led program is to nurture proficiency in Grade Level Math concepts.

Early Math Project helps nix “naked numbers”

"Naked" or unitless numbers can make it difficult for students to associate numbers with meaning or value, causing difficulties in math. Check out how one teacher dispelled the confusion with a very simple activity.
Abacus is another tactile way to help students overcome meaningless, naked numbers

erikson.edu When children are asked to rattle off the numbers from 1 to 10 without actually counting something, these “naked numbers” can create all kinds of confusion.
