PD Session for Using Depth and Complexity in Primary Grades

I was reading some posts on Facebook about how hard it is to find training for teachers on using Kaplan's Depth and Complexity in the lower grades. So I made one.  :) This would be good for teachers Pre-K-2nd, it is just ways I have incorporated these concepts into my classroom. Less than an hour long.

Please let me know in the comments if the link doesn't work correctly (this is the first time I have shared something like this). I am working on a 2nd one for other ways to incorporate higher-level thinking as well. So let me know if this is something that was helpful for you.

I would be happy to share these ideas with your staff-could definitely do something virtual through Teams if you would like. Let me know if you have any questions or I can help in any with your planning.


  1. This was the BEST PD ever! I often use your ideas in my second grade class. I am teaching K in summer school and I could easily see them enjoying your ideas. Thank you for sharing this and thank you for writing your blog. The Big Ideas are so important.

    1. Awww thank you so much! I'm glad it was helpful.
