Keeping the Standards of Math Practice in Mind...

Last year we took time together to "unpack" the math standards of practice- and learned that these were the ongoing habits that engage our students in deeper thinking about math. Liz has recently read an article that focuses on the third standard of math practice- construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

Here is the link to the short article, and please take a little time to reflect about this standard of practice as a part of your math teaching each day.

SMP #3: Construct Viable Arguments and Critique the Reasoning of Others

Formative Assessment FRIDAY

Student Engagement with Kagan Structures

As noted in Greg's Weekly What's Up, Kagan training is coming in August, in District! If you are interested, please sign up for two to four days of training through Greg's Kagan SMORE. I, too, will be attending Kagan training this summer, and we will have collaborative engagement as one of our ongoing PD focuses next school year.

If you do decide to attend the summer training, also please let me know, and we can work together to share our knowledge with Edgewood staff!

More Math Communication with Families

As mentioned in Greg's Weekly What's Up, teachers now can send home the end of unit tests, along with the student reflection sheet. Ongoing communication in regard to math units, and even formative assessments sent home, will help families better understand what the students are learning each day. This will be important for the rest of this school year- now that our formal parent/teacher conferences have all been completed.

Upcoming things to note...
