About the Session:

Early learning classrooms are complex communities of learners where the learning needs and abilities are vast. Learn how to form and utilize small group teaching effectively in your classroom and through one activity rather than planning 25 different activities to meet all the needs. Learn to work smarter, not harder and get results in your classroom.
