Helpful resources for teaching Common Core Standards
Teachers and homeschoolers, this project is an amazing way to close out one calendar year or open a new year. Designing and building gingerbread houses creates an atmosphere of motivated engagement. The students feel the authenticity of the math challenges, and they’re excited to see their designs come to life. Students will make floor plans, calculate area and perimeter, and draw front and side view silhouettes. Then they build! Click this pin for more information and pics!
Have some fun this week, teachers! This math game builds important foundational understanding of fraction concepts ... and it's fun for students! Students fear fractions less when they participate in hands-on activities that build their concrete understanding of fractions. http://www.elementarymathconsultant.com/teaching-fractions-introduce-fraction-concepts/

4th Grade Teachers, these activities are high quality and engaging. Your are freed up to move about and help students who need it when you set up these math stations in your classroom. Classroom management and differentiation come easier as groups of students work independently and collaboratively to solve problems and create strong math connections through hands-on activities. This set of stations is the 5th in a line of bundles that can stand alone or taught in sequence. https://www.teachers
Principals and Directors, improve teacher effectiveness and morale with hands-on, interactive math workshops for your elementary teachers. Teachers come away with understanding of Common Core math content, excellent instructional practices, and a new excitement for teaching math. Every school can develop mathematicians. I'm looking forward to working with you. Let's do this! http://www.elementarymathconsultant.com/professional-development-services/
Elementary teachers, this is the way to effectively teach common core math! These math stations for 4th grade will keep students engaged and free you up to move around the classroom, providing targeted, differentiated support. This bundle comes with lesson plans, worksheets, standards, learning targets, answer keys, and an explanation of how to run research-backed stations in your classroom.
If you've been paying attention to the assessments that are following the Common Core State Standards, then you know that we need to raise rigor in our classrooms when it comes to problem solving. These problems will help prepare students for performance task assessments. Each of these seven problems is a full page (or more) of reading to help students practice reading for understanding in math problems. The problems are open ended, meaning that students can come to more than one answer. ...
Teachers and parents of elementary math students (especially 3rd and 4th grades!), there is a difference between memorizing math facts and knowing math facts. When kids learn multiplication facts through playing games, for example, their brain's natural tendency to become more efficient will move those facts into long-term memory and allow students to recall the answers quickly. Rote memorization can lead to students having facts memorized one school year and forgotten the the next.
