Common Core Math Practice Standards

This past year my Curriculum Coach hosted a professional development for the Common Core Mathematical Practice Standards. There are 8 practice standards that CommonCore says ALL Educators should seek to develop in their students. Most of us were shocked to know these separate standards existed. We were all familiar and fluent with the grade level standards but somehow managed to skip this part of the common core standards.

We worked in small groups to unpack the practice standards and talk about how it "looks" in our classrooms. We also made some great anchor charts and presented the info back to the rest of our K-2 team. These practice standards make the "how to" of deepening so much clearer.

Yesterday I came across an awesome Freebie at Mrs. Ricca's Kindergarten. Click the picture link to download your free copy from Mrs Ricca. This is sure to help you students remember the practice standards!

Comments make me happy :)!
