A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

I’ve always called Fifth Grade the “Goldilocks Zone” of teaching. Fifth Graders are unique in that they are neither too dependent nor too independent. And for the most part, they still love their teachers and enjoy school. It is this magical essence of a Fifth Grader that has made it my favorite grade to teach throughout my career as an educator.

One question I consistently hear in my work with Fifth Grade teachers across the country, and one I have asked myself over the years is, “What specifically can I do to have the greatest impact on my students’ learning and to accelerate their growth?” This question is even timelier as we prepare for the school year ahead and the significant impacts COVID-19 has had on our students’ learning. I understand firsthand the challenges you are facing as a teacher of Fifth Graders. My goal for this day is to share with you dozens of current, research-based strategies and techniques for accelerating your Fifth Graders’ learning.

Join me for a strategy-packed day filled with student-tested approaches that you can use immediately in your instruction. I will share powerful tools I have successfully used with my own Fifth Grade students that create a culture of collaboration, enhance social-emotional learning, and promote greater independence – all leading to engaged students who demonstrate high levels of growth.

Together, in this hands-on, interactive live online seminar we will explore terrific strategies that I have found to be effective in reaching even the most challenging Fifth Graders. You will leave with a wealth of proven strategies and ideas you can use immediately.

Lynn Stenroos

P.S. My focus will be on sharing cutting-edge, highly practical tools and strategies you can use the very next day with your Fifth Grade students.
