Elementary Math Teachers,
We are excited to announce that we will be providing all elementary math teachers with new math resources for the 2015-16 school year. The Math committee representing all schools and grade levels worked this spring to evaluate common core standards and programs which will best support instruction and student learning. Teachers began by studying the research on mathematics and creating a scope and sequence for our district. You can review the work HERE
The two math programs selected are Bridges and Eureka Math. Bridges will be used with K-5 students, and our sixth grade students will use Eureka Math. Eureka Math is also available as a supplemental resource for grades K-5. We will provide licenses for each grade level at each school. We invite you to explore both programs HERE
. Passwords are provided.
In addition, our neighboring districts (Cherry Creek and Littleton) are also using Bridges. We will participate in a 3 day Math Institute with Littleton July 27-29. This 3 day training for K-5 teachers, including Special Education and Coaches, will be a paid training for participants. You will receive a $450 stipend
for attending all three days. We will also provide a Math Institute for Eureka Math for sixth grade teachers.
If you are the special education teacher representing your school
, the institute June 15-17 has a specific offering tailored around your needs. Day one will focus on K-2 standards and materials, day two will focus on 3-5 standards and materials and day three will provide job alike collaboration. Sped teachers will engage in using the standards and materials to support the writing of IEP goals. Please register HERE
