A Team of eight teachers in grades 3-6 participated in the Bureau of Education and Research PD focusing on guided math instruction. Guided math allows teachers to work with students in small groups at their level of understanding and need. Using classroom-proven techniques to implement guided math in the classroom, teachers will be able to differentiate math instruction in ways that better meet the diverse needs of your students.
Grades three through five are implementing the McGraw-Hill My Math program this year. The My Math program provides the rigor, personalization, and student engagement needed to be successful with the Common Core State Standards. The program adoption committee members expressed enthusiasm and excitement about this program due to its online features, the large variety of lessons, rigor of problems, comprehensive assessments and ease of use.
Middle School math teachers are working in professional learning communities to refine assessments and calibrate scoring.
Our K-2 Math Program Selection Committee will participate in two upcoming sessions with vendors scheduled for February 15th and February 27th. I am thankful for the teacher volunteers to participating on this committee.
