A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

Teaching provides us with many joys as well as challenges. This has been especially true during our work as educators during COVID – whether teaching in-person or online. Like educators all around the country, I have faced these challenges on a daily basis with my own Second Grade class. I have also talked with many Second Grade teachers who are concerned about meeting the needs of all their students, especially those who are struggling or who have gaps in their learning due to being out of the traditional classroom.

I have designed this live online seminar to provide you with cutting-edge ideas, strategies, activities, and tools you can use to enhance your Second Grade program – whether you are teaching at school, online or someplace in between. During this fast-paced, action-packed day, you will learn Second Grade-tested techniques for implementing innovative teaching practices in language arts, math, science and social studies. We will explore successful strategies to help you work smarter, not harder using the latest, best practices for in-person and online instruction. You can immediately implement these strategies and ideas into your own program, confident they will work. This is because every activity, idea, strategy, and lesson I share has been classroom or digitally proven and tested with my own Second Grade students.

Along with the comprehensive Second Grade digital resource handbook you will receive, I will share many samples of actual Second Grade work. My goal is to give you the most practical, successful methods to apply and adapt the very best, cutting-edge teaching techniques to help you meet the needs of all your Second Grade students.

Be prepared to step into your students' shoes as I demonstrate these exciting and engaging techniques that you can take and use immediately – whether working in-person or online. I look forward to sharing a wealth of ideas and teaching strategies with you that will energize you and significantly boost the achievement of your Second Graders.

Amy Stark

P.S. This day will be packed with innovative, ready-to-use, inexpensive, practical ideas and activities ideal for Second Grade whether you're teaching in-person or remotely. Plus, you'll receive an idea packed Second Grade digital resource handbook and access to my online collection of ideas.
