About i2i

i2i For Teachers and child care workers

 Our PreK-12th Grade i2i cur­ricu­lum uses tran­si­tion­al times, brain break time, and oth­er snip­pets of time to play the pro­gram games. Each game can be taught and played in under 3 min­utes while giv­ing chil­dren the oppor­tu­ni­ty to prac­tice the aligned skills of life and learn­ing, as defined by CASEL.org; com­mu­ni­ca­tion and lan­guage skills as defined by CCSS and Flori­da B.E.S.T ELA stan­dards; and WIDA stan­dards for ELLs.

i2i KKIT Coaching

The Kath­leen Ken­ny Instruc­tion­al Tech­nique (KKIT) is based on the premise, “You are enough,” and “fail­ing fab­u­lous­ly.” Both ideas allow for the free­dom to learn and grow in a safe, sup­port­ive, encour­ag­ing learn­ing environment.
