Hi, We are implementing CCSS for the first time this year and my district has chosen to bundle standards into units that do not match yours. I love your products and am curious if you have designed the strands to be taught independently and the units broken apart or if they were intended to be taught as a bundle?
On  December 30, 2013J and J Math and More answered:
We have created individual lesson plans just for that purpose. We know everyone teaches the subjects in a different order. We have things labeled by domain (like expressions and equations) and by standard (6.ee.9).

You can find them at our store listed by domain, under "Custom Categories" on the top left part of the page. For example: "Lesson Plans--EE" is where you can find lesson plans in the Expressions and Equations domain, with each lesson plan being labeled by standard (just like in Unit 1.)

These lesson plans are exactly what are inside of our units. The only thing you don't get are the vocabulary quizzes, study guides and tests. The units are taught in the order we teach it, but you can use any of our lesson plans in any order that works for you.

If you are interested in assessments per standard--well we're working on those! If you check back, or follow us, you'll know when those start coming out. They will be 5 questions on the concepts taught in each standard, and include two versions so you can use one as a pre-test, and one as a post-test. Some standards will have more than one assessment, as many standards cover many topics.

We are so glad you love our products! It was a bright spot in our day to get your positive review.

On  December 25, 2013Deb Haswell (TpT Seller) said:
it looks like the whole idea of Prime Decomposition is left out. Wouldn't that fit in this unit? That is a really important concept. Plus, it is easier to find LCM & GCF of larger numbers using Prime Decomposition. (AKA Prime Factorization)
On  December 26, 2013J and J Math and More answered:
Prime factorization can be found in our Unit 1. You may have missed looking specifically on pages 11 and 13.

We agree with you about the importance of prime factorization, so we included links to videos and manipulatives that you can use to teach it. Here are just some of the links to prime factorization that are already found in our Unit 1.

http://www.softschools.com/math/factors/factor_tree/ This is an interactive prime factorization tree.

http://www.softschools.com/math/factors/least_common_multiples/lcm_with_venn_diagram/ This uses Venn diagrams to find the LCM. This activity shows how to use prime numbers to do it.

http://www.softschools.com/math/factors/greatest_common_factor/gcf_with_venn_diagram/ This uses Venn diagrams to find the GCF. This shows which prime factors two composite numbers share. Mulitiplying them together creates the GCF.

http://e-learningforkids.org/Courses/EN/M1104/index.html. This video uses prime factorization to find the GCF. Our students loved this one and talked about it for days. A great visual way to show them how to find it.

In our interpretation of the common core state standards, prime factorization was not specifically required, so it was not included in an objective. The titles of our units must, of necessity, be general and brief, so prime factorization was also not listed in the title of Unit 1. We can see how you did not think it was there. We did however, include all the possible extras we could in every unit we created! :)

I oonly looked at the GCF lessons, but it looks like exactly what I need. You've made me so happy, and saved me a ton of time. The only suggestion that I might make would be to add some worksheets with visual interest. Most of my students have a variety of sp. needs, and some of these worksheets will not hold their interest for long.
On  October 14, 2013J and J Math and More answered:
Yay! It is so nice to know we're making another teacher's life easier. :)

We understand where you're coming from about the worksheets not having a lot of visual interest. Some do (Unit 3, dividing fractions using models for example), but some don't. From the hundreds and hundreds of hours we've spent scouring the internet, those seem to be quite scarce. We can only link to what is currently on the internet.

We can tell you though, that the websites that are linked to each objective are often very high-interest and visual. They hold our students' attention, and we find that we refer to the visuals often in class. For example there is one link in Unit 1 where they use cows to explain LCM/GCF, and our students still refer to it as the cow video (though it's really an interactive website). Something like this happens in every unit we teach. The kids remember what they saw from the instructional websites very well.

Additionally, the game websites for each objective also hold our students' interest. We teach some students who are functioning far below sixth grade, and some who are above, and all of them enjoy going to a computer lab to play these math games. Seeing them excited to do anything math is wonderful!

I wish the units were aligned to Common Core but they have great resources
On  August 14, 2013J and J Math and More answered:
We're so glad you like our Unit 1. We were so hoping someone would like it like we do! :)

You are right that some units (like Unit 1) have standards from more than one CCSS domain represented. We're sorry that makes it harder for you!

To clarify though, we were super careful to make sure that every single bit of every single unit aligns to a part of the sixth grade common core curriculum, as best we know how to do it. The CCSS alignment is noted on every lesson plan. By the end of the year, every single standard in the sixth grade common core curriculum will be taught with robustness if you teach all thirteen units.

We already have rough drafts of all thirteen units, and are now slogging our way through final drafts of each of them. (We keep finding more things to put in them!) We're trying to go quickly, but starting a new school year at work is slowing us down. Once they are all on TpT (we have Unit 1 - Unit 3 available right now), you may be able to find a unit further down that is just what you need without having to teach it in the order of these units.

Thank you again for the feedback! :)

Hi! I love your Unit 1 that covers 6NS1 through 6NS4. Which unit would cover 6NS5-8? I am trying to figure it out, but only so much shows in the examples. I am anxious to purchase it if it exists. Thank you!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 11, 2013J and J Math and More answered:
Thank you for the idea of a better way to label the Units! We'll get that done as soon as we can.

We have it on our computer ready to upload! 6NS5-6NS8 are contained in our Units 6 and 1/2 of our Unit 7. We are just super careful to retake our tests and check our work over and over and over again so as to catch our errors. (And we still miss some--agghh!) Our goal is to get Unit 6 up by Sat. It can take us up to two weeks to have the time to check links, review tests, and upload another Unit.

Also, 6NS1 is covered in our Unit 3. 6NS6b, 6NS6c, and 6NS8 are covered in Unit 7. But both Units also cover other standards. This means that if you use our tests for these units, it will also cover material from other standards. You could just ignore those parts of the tests if you wanted to.

ALL of the links in our Units are sorted by domain in the following products--just not the extra stuff like tests, pacing etc.

"6th Grade Math 6NS1-6NS8 Number System Free Homework Internet Links"

and our

"6th Grade Math: 6.NS.1 - 6.NS.8: Number System Instructional Aids

We're trying to make our organization clearer--and if you have ideas how to, let us know! If you think we should make individual lesson plans, without tests, available by CCCS domain number, also let us know. We'd love to put this information out there in the most convenient way possible!

Thanks for asking! And you should have a lot of 6NS5-8 by Saturday!
