A small hands-on “Best Practices” Workshop (Limited to 35)

3 PDUs or 6 WA Clock Hours available

Create a supportive "Parents as Partners" program with easy-to-implement strategies that will make a powerful difference in each child’s language and literacy development, social skills and love of learning.

In just one day, you will learn how to:

Motivate kindergarten families at spring registration to build literacy skills over the summer: ABC Phonics, name writing, singing, talking, reading, and playing with nursery rhymes.


Build a powerful Parents as Partners program that multiplies your teaching effectiveness ALL YEAR LONG! Meet new ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) guidelines with meaningful family involvement.

Create a simple, delightful open house with a welcoming Scavenger Hunt; then have the best literacy night ever!

Share authentic and meaningful ways for families to help grow kindergarten writers and illustrators. Teach the developmental levels of writing and drawing.

Help families understand the value of play: outdoor play, purposeful literacy play, block building, and making things.

Engage families in student-led parent conferences; empower children to take ownership of their learning process.

Learn how to get more parent volunteers into the classroom and how to use their skills more effectively. Create a “giving tree” for classroom needs and wishes.

Establish family reading traditions including home-to-school Book Clubs and Book Buddy Bags.

Build Family Connections that Multiply Your Teaching Effectiveness: Begin with Spring Registration!

Support Parents as Partners in helping edit and publish kindergartners’ books this spring. Your students and families will LOVE these books! This is one of the best things we do!

Build Family Connections that Multiply Your Teaching Effectiveness: Begin with Spring Registration!

Learn to sing and sign for your end-of-year family celebration: What a Wonderful World, The Pledge of Allegiance, and Goodnight Irene.

“We have a covenant with families that says we jointly share responsibility for teaching your child.”
—Ernest Boyer
