CORE TRAINING

What insight will you gain from this membership?

Understand Your Standard

In Module 1, you will learn the foundation of any successful teaching strategy... understand your standard. I will walk you through how to get VERY clearly on what mastery of first grade standards should look like in your literacy block!

Non-Text Activities

In Module 2, we are going to dive into a highly un-utilized resource: non-text activities. I will give you insight into why non-text activities are so effective and help you figure out where they fit into your balanced literacy framework.

Whole Group Opportunities

In Module 3, we are going to talk about whole group opportunities. What skills or strategies are you having to re-teach over and over again in your small groups that you could be teaching whole group instead?

Integration

In Module 4, we are going to take all of the brainstorming and researching you have done into your standard, and re-purpose those activities into your stations.

Meet the Teacher

I am a momma of two, wife to a real estate agent and daughter of two teachers. I am in my eighth year of teaching First Grade and like you I needed a way to balance all of the new "best practices" aka Balanced Literacy and what I thought was truly best for my students. I was also tired of spending my nights planning and creating stations when I wanted to be spending time with my family. That' why I believe so much in this formula. It has worked for me and I know it will work for you, too!
