A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

Mathematics is my favorite subject to teach and many of my students look forward to our daily math instruction as the best part of our day. But like all of us who teach primary grades, my biggest challenge is to meet the needs of all my students, from those who love math to those who struggle to learn the most basic skills and concepts. In over three decades of teaching K-2, I have found a wealth of ideas, strategies and outstanding materials that go a long way toward reaching each student.

Throughout this NEW seminar, I will share the best, most successful techniques I’ve found that motivate my students who struggle with math and challenge those who are ready for enrichment. I will introduce proven methods for using innovative, creative activities to teach math facts to help students master the skills they need in number sense, operations, measurement and data, and problem solving – and to enrich the skills of the most capable math students in each of these areas. You will see dozens of instructional techniques and a wealth of activities that I use with my students on a daily basis, all of which can be implemented immediately in your own classroom.

My goal is not to add more to “your plate,” but rather to give you specific, timesaving ideas for managing your instructional time in ways that will maximize the motivation, confidence, enjoyment, and success of your students with math. Join me to discover effective and powerful strategies to help all your students improve as mathematicians.

Sincerely,
Gary Eisenberg

P.S. You’ll leave this seminar inspired, enthusiastic, reinvigorated, and ready to use these strategies to meet the diverse needs of your students.
