Frog Street is a research-based curriculum that focuses on the development of early childhood minds. Our Frog Street training provide teachers and administrators with information and hands-on experiences to gain knowledge of the curriculum and skills for classroom application, in support of increasing achievement of learning goals in classrooms. It ensures that participants understand the curricular themes, planning tools, and developmental areas, especially the social and emotional components that align with strategies from Conscious Discipline.
Frog Street Curriculum implementation and follow-up training helps teachers connect all of the dots when it comes to ease of use and intentional instruction. Whether it is a first year teacher or a seasoned veteran, our highly-qualified and skilled consultants train educators on best practices and organizational techniques using the many resources provided by Frog Street.
Mathematics and the Young Child training is an overview of research-based best practices that should underscore early math instruction in preschool. Specifically, participants will examine five content areas: Number and Operations, Geometry, Measurement, Algebra (Patterns), and Data Analysis (Graphing and Classification) identified by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) as focal points for preschool mathematics. Participants will engage with this material and content in a way that closely mirrors the dialogic, hands-on learning through which young children should experience mathematics. A variety of teacher-directed and child-initiated contexts, including whole group, small group, and play-based practice center activities will be presented.
Frog Street Literacy training focuses on the connection between early literacy and numeracy skills and review strategies to create a rich environment to help develop these in tandem. This connection is critical in terms of early school success and is a necessary building block in other content areas.
Registration is accepted on a first-come, first-served basis although we reserve the right to limit the number of participants from any one center. Teachers must register themselves using their own email address and personal phone number. This information is needed for communications to confirm registration and to communicate any changes to training logistics.
