PORTSMOUTH, N.H. and LAS VEGAS, Feb. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Featuring motivating PreK presenters who are real educators with years of classroom experience, a strand of sessions at the 2020 SDE National Conference will address key topics on the minds of today's PreK teachers and administrators. The I Teach PreK! strand will be held July 6–10 in Las Vegas, NV. 

"Once again this year, we'll bring together the BEST PreK speakers to address the hottest PreK topics, including play-based learning, fine motor skills, behavior and classroom management, foundation math and literacy, and music and movement," Laureen Reynolds, SDE/Stenhouse Director of Professional Development Services, said.

In five days of fun and active learning, attendees will learn how to create experiences that support all approaches of emergent learning, encourage social-emotional and motor skill development, and incorporate developmentally-appropriate language and literacy activities throughout the day. They'll discover how to provide concrete experiences that stimulate thinking and talking about math concepts. In addition, they'll find out how to organize their space and design learning opportunities that foster independence and curiosity.

The SDE 2020 National Conference features 430+ sessions across five grade- and topic-focused strands for PreK, K, 1st, and 2nd, with an additional track for Differentiated Instruction.

"I Teach PreK! educators may personalize their learning journey by attending any grade-specific sessions or Differentiated Instruction sessions, or by mixing it up.
