NASHUA, N.H. and PETERBOROUGH, N.H., Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Years of research confirms the foundational importance of early education and high-quality learning experiences that encourage a child's social and academic growth. At the 2016 Conference for New England Pre-Kindergarten & Kindergarten Teachers, educators will get up-to-date on new, research-based strategies that will help them succeed in preparing their young students to be lifelong learners. The conference will be held November 28-29, 2016, in Nashua, NH.
This innovative event provides teachers with engaging presenters, fresh content, ready-to-implement strategies, developmentally appropriate play-based activities, and behavior management ideas. In 32 sessions, teachers will learn how to teach math and literacy to emergent learners, "fit it all in," address the needs of struggling students, infuse excitement into learning, and much more.
"We constantly hear from early education teachers who are seeking new and better ways to engage students, but are unsure how to do that with current standards expectations," says SDE program developer Kymra Kurinskas. "They simply don't have the time to research the solutions themselves or learn by trial and error. That's why we developed this two-day event. Better ways to build fun into teaching through play, inquiry, project-based learning, games, and centers will finally be in their hands," Kurinskas says.
Program developers have packed a lot of information into the two days. Teachers will gain tools to create a child-centered learning environment, including hands-on opportunities for social and academic growth, differentiated instruction, and STEM integration. Attendees will return to their classrooms feeling motivated and energized and ready for the next challenge.
The annual event is the definitive source of inspiration and encouragement for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten teachers. One of the biggest reasons why is the roster of professionals who will generously share their teaching experiences and successes. Featured presenters this year include keynote speakers Lori Elliott, Ed.D. and Cindy Middendorf, Kim Adsit, Tere Bowen-Irish, and Pat Pavelka.
"When expectations and requirements change, teachers have to change accordingly. This conference is the fastest, most concise way to gain the essential strategies they need to perform their jobs with more confidence and success," Kurinskas says.
