Seminar for Kindergarten Teachers to Help Establish Pathways for Academic Achievement and Social-Emotional Development

OKLAHOMA CITY and MINNEAPOLIS and PETERBOROUGH, N.H., May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Starting the school year successfully is a critical commitment to year-long success for a kindergarten classroom. Teachers must be prepared to set foundations and expectations for academic achievement and social-emotional learning. Early childhood veteran Kim Adsit’s new seminar, The First 30 Days of Kindergarten: Plans, Routines & Activities for the Start of Your New School, is for all kindergarten teachers who could use practical strategies to help ensure every student learns and succeeds. The seminar will be offered in Oklahoma City, OK on June 19-20, 2017, and Minneapolis, MN on August 7-8, 2017.

According to SDE Programming Director Laureen Reynolds, “The first 30 days set the tone and can be pivotal to a teacher’s success or struggle for the remainder of the year. Kim places the wisdom and warnings of experienced kindergarten teachers within fingertip reach of both new and experienced teachers.”  

During the two days, Adsit takes a deep dive into instructional, classroom, and behavior management strategies that will pay off all year long. Attendees will learn how to maximize instructional impact, increase engagement, differentiate core content, and advance students towards mastery of the standards.

Adsit is an expert in classroom and behavior management. She speaks from 30 years of experience teaching in a kindergarten classroom and is a former Teacher of the Year. Through her popular blog, KinderGals, she motivates teachers across the country with her child-centered, developmentally appropriate, and highly rigorous strategies.

Attendees will discover little-known tips, surprising secrets, and unwritten rules for reducing behavior problems, engaging students, assessing learning, creating a positive classroom environment, and building relationships with students and their parents.

“Teachers can avoid a lot of time-wasting mistakes by following the simple, but often unknown, strategies presented in this seminar. It’s like having a seasoned kindergarten coach right by your side, ensuring you and your students succeed starting on day one,” Adsit says.

The First 30 Days of Kindergarten: Plans, Routines, & Activities for the Start of Your New School Year will be offered in Oklahoma City, OK on June 19-20, 2017, and Minneapolis, MN on August 7-8, 2017.
