Prior
to 2013-2014 school year
our Math program was called ABC Math. It was
developed by Ms. Rose
Clements and Ms. Torrie
Guzzetta. Both of these ladies are from Vermilion
Parish and did an excellent job with this program.
Based on the
new Common Core State Standards Vermilion Parish has
adopted a new math program called Engage New
York. I have fortunate to learn first-hand from
the writers.
Math class begins first thing
in the morning. For 15 minutes the children
teach Every Day Counts (Calendar Math). Math is
about 60 minutes long; during this time we work on
number fluency, vocabulary, concept
development and problem sets. |
