Resources, links, games, ideas and more.

Based on our discussion and the resources and support identified by you to meet the needs of our students. Please add more to your grade level padlet (see below) to collaborate and curate resources to share.

Focus Standards and More Resources

Focus Standards

There are WAY too many standards to try to focus for standard mastery. These documents from Achieve the Core lay out the standards to really focus your instruction of during the year and give you the one or two standards that students must master by the end of the year. http://achievethecore.org/category/774/mathematics-focus-by-grade-level

Collaboration and Curation!

Treat these padlets like a grade level Pinterest page (you can even link to a Pinterest page!) and add resources to help support teaching our math focus standards.

Get Googley and Teach Math with Tech

Use Google Forms to help reinforce math concepts in a manageable way. Check out the link below for more information and an explanation on how to get started using them. See an example of a form from third grade as well. Ask Ashley, Sherry, Tracey or Mike about how they are using them in their class!
