• Go Math!

    • Our class will not be using the Everyday Math program that your children used in Kindergarten and 1st grade.

    • We have the opportunity to pilot a new Math curriculum. I am very excited about using the Go Math curriculum with your children this year.

    • Go Math is a curriculum that builds mastery of all content areas and provides a focused approach to developing children’s mathematical understanding, procedural skills, and fluency. An emphasis is placed on making connections between concepts and skills as children move through a carefully-sequenced learning experience.

    • Every Go Math! Lesson follows the same lesson design based on the 5E model of instruction: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate.
    • There is also a Practice and Homework page with each lesson. We will try to complete these in school, if time allows. If not, it will be sent home as Homework.

    • There will be tests at the end of each unit. Tests will be announced in advance, a study guide will be sent home, and a reminder will be sent the day before.
