July 12, 2021 - July 14, 2021
8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Constructing the perfect scenario for your kindergarten students isn’t something that’s finished overnight. We’re committed to your success and that of your children with a heavy lift taken in three manageable parts.
We start on July 12, 2021, when we build the foundation. We’ll help you get started with a plan that’s been tested by accomplished teachers across North America and proven successful by measurable results from students. We’ll show you what a properly organized classroom looks like and how it maximizes your efficiency and positively impacts your students. In addition, we’ll cover every angle from the best materials to the best practices in what we’re sure will be a model classroom for your school.
In addition, 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.
On July 13th, 2021 geometry and measurement take 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. 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 July 14th, 2021 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!
