Constructing the perfect scenario for your students isn’t something that’s finished overnight. We’re committed to your success and that of your kindergarten kids with a heavy lift taken in four manageable parts.
We start on August 18, 2022 when we’ll turn our attention to our first content area of number and how it develops. You’ll learn our deeply researched methods of building concepts, checking for student understanding, how to revisit, and plan to revisit ideas that students may not grasp. We have a plan for a child who struggles to keep up and how we assess that student and the entire classroom so that your long-term goals are met by building a student’s knowledge in a carefully constructed manner.
The fall semester will afford you the opportunity to implement your new plan and we’ll reengage with you on November 3, 2022 to talk about where you are and show you the next phase of our Developing Roots agenda. Measurement takes center stage in this crucial session. We’ll identify the big ideas, talk about how content builds off what we’ve already taught, and focus keenly on implementing those past ideas of numbers into strands.
We’ll reconvene two months later on January 10. 2023 when we’ll turn our attention to our third content area Geometry. There are multiple extensions to the plan, and we’ll cover implementation and the benefits of incorporating them into the plan in order to take a deep dive into understanding with your students.
We’ll put the finishing touches to your plan on March 7, 2023 when we will tackle the idea of setting foundations for addition and subtraction, offer a conceptual understanding of what the symbols represent, and how we start to build fluency within those operations.
In every session we’ve built time to discuss what you’re doing with the other teachers who join us and for you to learn from their successes and the ways in which they’ve overcome challenges.

“Hands down this was the BEST math conference I’ve ever attended. Sarah, Cheri, and Melissa were phenomenal! Not only did we walk away with practical hands-on activities to use immediately-we have an understanding of why it is important.”
-Deb from Delaware
I have taught for over 20 years and this is the FIRST workshop I have attended that was entirely focused on Kindergarten math! So much useful information to take back to my classroom!! Every kindergarten teacher should attend!
