So, teachers returned to work today at my school and students return tomorrow from a two week break. I was refreshed and ready to go today and got quite a bit done in my room...SCORE! Plus, we had some really good staff meetings today that felt productive and just got me excited about getting back into my room. Anyone that has started using the Common Core math standards yet? I'd love to hear your thoughts! Our school has begun training and will be implementing this next year. The number talks and idea of teaching conceptually verses procedurally, makes me excited. I already do a lot of this in my room, but allowing the children more freedom to find answers in their own unique ways is just so cool to me! SO, thoughts anyone? Do you love it? How are you implementing the common core in your rooms?
