9AM-12 NOON: Tools to Amplify Learning: Research-Based Strategies for the Montessori Guide
Scientific observation is at the heart of Montessori practice and a vital tool that teachers utilize daily to engage their students. Current research reveals the inner workings of the brain and supports what Dr. Montessori identified through her keen observations of the child. Montessori educators who leverage their understanding of the science behind their practices, equipped with research-based teaching strategies, enhance student learning and amplify outcomes. Tapping into each teacher's mission to become a scientist in the field, Tammy Oesting will inspire their spirit and optimize their practice with hands-on, research-based practical strategies loyal to Montessori pedagogy.

1 PM-4 PM: Building Number Sense
Children naturally acquire a mathematical mind and when exposed to specific activities, build a solid foundation for more advanced concepts. Learn new lessons for two to four year olds that precede number rods and coincide with sensorial materials, and amplify your understanding of the development of your students' number sense.

COST: $40/session or $60 for both.
