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.
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.
Language and Literacy for Pre-K focuses a developmental sequence of emergent literacy based on research. Participants will review the daily literacy instruction in Frog Street curriculum that includes strategies to build oral language skills focused on vocabulary and comprehension skills, phonological awareness, concepts of print, expressive writing, and alphabet knowledge. Teachers will observe modeled instruction and apply strategies in small groups
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.

Advanced Strategies to Optimize Frog Street’s Pre-K Curriculum builds upon established foundational skills and is designed to further enhance instructional knowledge and skills. This highly interactive session links literacy and math teaching activities to current research in ways that magnify outcomes for children. For example, do you know how critical the sequence for Morning Message is in developing phonological awareness and, ultimately, alphabet awareness? Did you know there are five recommendations from the What Works Clearinghouse: Teaching Math to Young Children that identify developmental progressions that improve children’s’ mathematical abilities?
Frog Street Literacy and Numeracy 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.
