Math


This week, we have spent two days in meetings with math consultant, Cassy Turner.She meet with grade level teams to talk about our successes with the new program, Math in Focus-and to help us look ahead as we plan our continued implementation. It was good to hear her affirm how we're teaching math in our classrooms, and how engaged our students are with new vocabulary and problem-solving strategies. One thing we hear loud and clear was to make sure students are "fluent" with their math facts. So, continue to practice these at home. Last night, approximately 35 parents attended "boot camp."  Much of last night's session was "hands-o for parents... here are notes taken by Peg Bailey from Cassy's presentation.
