KINDERGARTEN - 1st Quarter 2016-2017

Welcome to the New Online Newsletter Format!

The 2016-2017 school year is under way and moving fast. Please make sure you are checking the Elementary Mathematics Guidelines, the new "Recommended Sequence and Pacing Guides", and the GO Math!©2015 Lesson Resources Document, which has links to engaging videos, games, and center activities.

New Additions to the Recommended Sequence and pacing guides

The PARCC Formative Tasks have been added to each marking period of the Kindergarten Recommended Sequence and Pacing Guides. These activities can be used as center activities and as powerful assessments that will allow you the opportunity to observe your students engaged in the skills you have been teaching. The tasks come with observational checklists that make collecting data easy. The Formative Tasks can be found on the district cybrary and also on the Partnership Resource Center website https://prc.parcconline.org/.

Dreambox Tips and Hints

Middletown Township School District has continued the use of Dreambox Learning for K-5 students for the 2016-2017 school year. This online learning tool is a great way to individualize instruction for your students. The self-adapting software tailors every math lesson to your individual student's needs, putting each student on his or her own learning path. One way to use Dreambox in your classroom is during Math Center Time. See the gallery below for some helpful tips and hints.
