We will be utilizing the Common Core Approach to Mathematics. This is taught through "A Story of Units" which intertwines the three components of this program. The program is based on the Common Core standards which were created to follow your child throughout his or her school career. There are many meaningful assessments throughout the program to help target specific content areas. It also addresses how we as teachers can help your child and how your child can self-assess and grow mathematically. The children will engage in a deeper understanding of math concepts through engaging lessons that will help them further develop their understanding of math.
In the beginning of each module, you will receive a module overview as well as a list of vocabulary.
Your child will be using a workbook for each Module. This book will travel back and forth from school to home. Please make sure it makes it back to school each day, as your child needs to do work in the book daily. Thanks so much for your support in helping to instill great homework habits and responsibility in your first grader!!
