This resource for first, second, and third grade teachers describes best practices for promoting learning and development while helping students meet standards. You will find information, ideas, experiences, and activities that

  • Promote positive approaches to learning and foster students’ social and emotional development
  • Help students meet standards in English language arts, math, science, and social studies
  • Support authentic assessment to scaffold student progress and improve instruction

Filled with research-based strategies, this book offers assistance for the many decisions teachers make every day. Learn more about the book. 

This book is a perfect balance between easy-to-read research and practical application. ‘Try This!,’ ‘In a Nutshell,’ and ‘Home–School Connections’ are my favorite parts as they can be used by our teachers to enhance their classrooms immediately.”
