The following is a revised version of the ppt above . It provides more time for work with the standards, additional notes for facilitators, as well as specific K-2/3-5 directions. February Math Waiver Day Revised.pptx

Suzie Rose from Huntingtowne Farms created a Smart Board file to use Monday for teachers to rank the importance of the Common Core Standards. I cloned it on to another page so you can then split screen and compare after looking at the Focus Shift. CCSSM_Importance Chart.notebook


You will want to print pages 4 and 7. Page 5- just for the facilitator http://www.achievethecore.org/downloads/Thinking%20About%20Place%20Value%20in%20Grade%20Two.pdf
Pages 4-7 of the Math Shifts Document contain information for the part where teachers look at what is the focus at their grade level. (You could just make a copy or two for each grade level, they don’t need the whole packet). http://www.achievethecore.org/downloads/Math%20Shifts%20and%20Major%20Work%20of%20Grade.pdf

Cognitively Guided Instruction-
CGI, nationwide, has been minimized to problem structures and problem types because that is the focus in the Common Core. As some of you know, the CGI program is much more- and really gives a clear progression on how we teach problem solving, and how to support students of all abilities in solving problems.
Some great CGI resources-
1) The original CGI book w/ videos of students solving problems

2) CGI w/ fractions and decimals- amazing new resource
