A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

Teaching our young learners is already challenging work and now we have the State Standards to prepare our students to meet! How can we do it all without spending hours planning, collecting materials and organizing? As a teacher myself, I know how hard you already work! This day will help you implement yourState Standards with what you already do and with many of the materials you already have in your classroom.

Join your colleagues and me for a day filled with practical, ready-to-use math strategies and activities to help you seamlessly incorporate the strands of the math standards. I will model dozens of lessons and activities that you can immediately use in your own classroom.

Here is a sample of what you’ll learn:

  • Numerous math learning center ideas to help your young students learn number sense and math concepts to begin to become independent learners
  • Games, songs and activities perfect for teaching and reinforcing math
  • Quality children’s literature to connect to the State Standards in math
  • Modeled lessons that will have a positive impact on your classroom instruction
  • Demonstrations of games and learning stations that will keep students moving and learning in mathematics

I can’t wait to share with you what I have found works best with our preschoolers and kindergartners! Come ready to sing, dance, move, and share a day packed with not only practical math strategies, but a renewed inspiration for teaching.

Sincerely,
Carolyn McMahon

P.S. You will also receive my extensive resource handbook filled with ideas, strategies and lessons you can use immediately!
