Spring Into Training!

Spring into training and explore professional development opportunities this spring to brighten up your classroom. As we leave winter behind, check out our top three reasons you should freshen up your teaching strategies this spring:


1. Collaborate with other educators

Spring is the perfect time to collaborate with other educators! As you stock up on proven strategies and hands-on, creative ideas to implement in your classroom, workshops are a great place to collaborate with other educators to get a peek into their classrooms. Learn about what methods work for their students or discover which methods they plan on changing for the next school year.


2. Learn about assessments

Spring is an ideal time to start gearing up for year-end-assessments. Since you’ve most likely administered beginning-of-the-year and mid-year assessments, it’s important to learn the best ways to track progress to see how your students have improved their skills throughout the year.


3. Stock up on strategies to strengthen your skills during the summer

Stocking up on strategies this spring is a great way to invest in your professional development. Once you have proven strategies, you can prepare how to implement them to get the most out of your teaching for the next year.


Spring is blooming with professional development opportunities that are perfect to implement into your classroom before the school year ends.  Check out our new spring webinar series kicking off with the Top 10 Questions About Handwriting free webinar, and explore our award-winning workshops for Pre-K, handwriting, and keyboarding and learn more about our new editions of handwriting workbooks, teacher’s guides, and building writers writing workbooks.  Use promo code BLOG2018 and get $35 off any in-person workshop!
