Our teachers have been studying progressions of learning. The concepts that students learn at each grade level build on one another to deepen understanding. For more detailed information, please check the resources to the right labeled "Learning Progressions"
We are working on helping students learn their multiplication facts through fact strategy instruction to build understanding AND fluency. Students are expected to know up to 9 x9 =81 by the end of grade 3.
PARENT SUPPORT FOR NEW UNITS
We are about halfway through the process of revising our district math curriculum. Math in Focus is still a resource. Additional resources are being utilized to enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics. Our new units contain a parent handout that outlines strategies students may use. There are currently parent handouts for four units in third and fourth grade and five units in fifth grade.
