45 min Session
Audience Focus: Elementary, Secondary
In this session, we will be looking at different materials that Kristina Smekens uses to teach reading and writing. We will look at books, materials, and watch videos to give you an idea of how her engaging lessons work. I will share how I’ve incorporated Smekens methods into my 5th and 7th grade Language Arts classrooms.
5th Grade Teacher
I have taught language arts for 3 years at the elementary and middle school levels. During that time, I have been to two conferences by Kristina Smekens. After leaving the first conference I attended, I immediately started using her lessons and materials in my classroom! The students stay engaged and love the different types of writing lessons we do.
