I wrote a grant not too long ago and had it funded last week.  Here are the materials that we received:

Math Common Core Standards

For the last day and a half, I’ve been attending workshops about the new national common core standards for math.  In our state (IN), Kindergarten will be implementing them in the 2011-2012 school year and a grade will be added every year there after for the next few years.

This caused us to have to re-think our math assessment and our report card–anyone else out there having the same things come up?

I am busily going through my teacher math books finding games and activities that go along with each of the CCS that need to be taught.  It looks like we have a huge emphasis on Number Concept and Geometry in Kindergarten.  The books I’m currently searching are:

Developing Number Concepts by Kathy Richardson

Developing Number Concepts with Unifix Cubes by Kathy Richardson

Math Work Stations by Debbie Diller

Teaching Student Centered Mathematics Grades K-2 by John A. Van de Walle

 

Does anyone else have any other books to suggest or how are you dealing with the transition to the CCS?  Are you switching all subjects or just math?  That’s all we know about at this point…I do have another workshop tomorrow with our Math and Literacy Title 1 staff. 🙂
