COLUMBUS, Ohio and PETERBOROUGH, N.H., Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With the recent revisions of Ohio's learning standards and kindergarten readiness assessments, how to meet new expectations is on every teacher's mind these days. The upcoming 2017 Conference for Ohio Kindergarten Teachers will deliver the insights and research-based strategies teachers need to succeed. The conference hosted by Staff Development for Educators (SDE) will be offered January 23-24, 2017, in Columbus, OH.
This 32-session event focuses on the unique and seemingly unsolvable challenges kindergarten teachers face in the classroom. Teachers will learn how to teach to the Ohio Learning Standards and make it fun, differentiate instruction to boost the success of all learners, maximize learning with games and centers, and engage students in sight words, vocabulary, phonics and literacy. In addition, teachers will learn new and better ways to fit it all into their busy day.
"Great kindergarten teachers are trained, not born. If you want to be the very best teacher you can be, you need to build a solid foundation of skills and knowledge that will help you achieve excellence. This highly acclaimed conference will help you do just that," SDE program developer Mia Leonard-Solis says.
The event will deliver a balance of solid, current, and standards-based sessions focused on ELA, math, writing, and social studies as well as on time management and "fitting it all in." This is not a re-hash of old strategies. It is a program specifically designed to introduce the latest thinking and most innovative solutions. Teachers who have been teaching for decades as well as those who've just recently entered the classroom will benefit from the singular focus of this new event.
The all-star line-up of presenters includes kindergarten expert and author Kim Adsit, popular blogger Deedee Wills, and classroom technology expert Kurt Schwengel. National Board Certified Sandi Reyes and Angie Bonthius will round out the team. Teachers will hear motivating keynotes, roll up their sleeves in hands-on sessions, and share with and learn from other Ohio educators who face the same challenges they do.
"We're excited about the program we've put together. Ohio kindergarten teachers will discuss real-world issues and real-life solutions they can use immediately. And, they'll take back to their rooms fresh strategies that will engage and delight every kindergartner," Leonard-Solis says.
