«Just when you think there’s nothing new under the sun, Kim, Deedee, and Adam arrive with their creative and innovative ways to jazz up centers, science, and other content areas in a standards-based, kindergarten classroom,» SDE program developer Kymra Kurinskas says.

Teachers will laugh, sing, and learn as they discover how to establish a rock-solid foundation in early literacy, maximize play-based practices, and build independent students through routines, grouping strategies, arrangement, and flexible seating. In addition, they’ll try out hands-on activities for developing higher-order thinking in math and science and engaging students in the standards.

«Both new and veteran teachers are invited to celebrate kindergarten with Kim and her crew who will reveal dozens of time-tested strategies and fun, new teaching twists… all in the name of kindergarten cool,» Kurinskas says.
