Math: Let’s talk about numbers. We will learn how to help students develop the meaning of number and the sub-skills that lead to true number sense. We will explore hands on activities to take back to the classroom as well as how to incorporate and support math that occurs during your daily routines. Literacy: So much to learn and so little time. We’ll focus on the critical literacy skills that get the most for the time we spend on them. Learn how to support developing oral language fluency and phonemic awareness, and approach letter awareness to make it stick. We’ll also touch on some pre-school writing and grammar. Math: More

While it is crucial for children to develop their skills within the STEAM disciplines, they must hone their literacy skills first. Literacy skills are vital to understanding STEM concepts and will lead to success across all disciplines. Let’s learn how to smash literature and STEAM together! Come join us as we: - use picture books to enhance our literacy time and help with STEM concepts -understand how to use Novel Engineering in your classroom -understand the ends and outs of having a mini Makerspace in your classroom that you and your students can use to showcase learning of literacy skills -and how to use digital storytelling to enhance student’s creativity, writing, and problem-solving skills.

Social Studies Professional Learning Group Day 1 2019-20 school year. The new Kansas History / Government standards encourage a research-based approach to instructional and learning. But what does high-quality historical thinking look like? What resources are best? What books should we be reading? What tools work best? What lesson plans can we share? Be part of the group as we work together to figure out the answers! We'll get together at ESSDACK throughout the year, set our own agenda, enjoy great conversation, and walk out the door smarter and better prepared to provide high-quality classroom instruction. Sign up once and attend all four sessions. Or one or two days if you can't make all the year! Just call Pam to get enrolled. Lunch is included and college credit is also available. More

We know that both early literacy AND early numeracy skills, developed during the early childhood period, are strong predictors of long-term achievement (e.g., Duncan et al., 2007). They are also necessary building blocks for knowledge in other areas (e.g., Snow, Burns, & Griffin, 1998). 

So how do we use this information to create rich environments that support both early literacy and numeracy skill development?

Renee and Jane put their heads together and explored books with an intentional math focus and discovered the ease of incorporating both math and literacy skills. Come join the fun, experience the activities, and leave with ready-made classroom materials. Materials cost:

Meaningful Conversations for Para or Teacher Educators A supportive and caring relationship can increase a student's chances of success and engagement by thirty times. As a paraprofessional, you have an incredible opportunity to build meaningful relationships with struggling students. Over the course of a day you may be called upon to not only support a student academically, but also socially and emotionally. During this workshop you will learn five different types of coaching conversations that you can immediately begin to use in your daily work with students. These meaningful conversations include structures for planning, reflecting, problem-solving conversations, and academic focused questioning strategies for math, ELA, social studies, and science. More

Does it seem like you’re spending more time managing behaviors than teaching skills and concepts? 

Executive functions include attention, impulse control and working memory. 

Join us as we investigate the causes of executive function deficits and the role executive function and self-regulation play in preparing students for social and academic success in the early grades.
