November: M-3 Standards- Aligned Lessons
What does Standard- Aligned Lessons Look Like?
How can we achieve this at Rocky River?
There are plenty of tools that align to the NC Standards. Here are a few:
- Discovery Education: This resource has multiple tech books according to grade level and state standards. At the elementary level, we have a subscription to the Science Techbook. This provides units of content for students to participate in, as well as checkpoints/ review questions. There are also STEM activities for those who want to elaborate on a particular concept.
- Discovery Education Streaming also has a Common Core in the Classroom tab, that allows teachers to search for ELA and Math concepts through the standards.
- Tenmarks: There are two sides to Tenmarks, and both provide math materials that are standards- aligned. Teachers can use "Smartboard-like" pre-made lessons, that provide slides for common misconceptions, warmup activities, focus lessons, and extensions. There is also a assignments side, which is used to assign work to students on particular standards. The great piece to this tool is the extra "reflection" students have for remediation after a certain assignment.
- Storia: This online ebook collection is more than just a collection of books. Teachers can make their own selections of books for students to read, and search by standards.
*** If you, or a teammate, is planning on using any of these listed tools, please consider writing it in on our Monthly Sharing Calendar so that others can stop in and take a peek!***

Octoboer M-2 High Expectations Instructional Highlight
There is a lot to remember in Discovery Ed. Board Builder can be used to teach about different Native American tribes, the life of Pilgrims and Native Americans and you can showcase holidays around the World.
We have a few eReaders on Christmas around the world. They feature the countries of France, Germany and Italy. If you would like help accessing these, just let us know.
Worried that you can't find some more resources that link to the Common Core Standards, at your students level, well just ask Jessica Seto how you can do this!! If not, Ms. Jayne would be happy to show you.
