kamartz re: First Grade Common Core Math Assessment Tasks - The Complete Set
I just purchased this and I am very excited about. My school is currently going through the transition into the Common Core. I have a few questions, if you have the time to answer them.
1- I wonder why many programs don't start solely (including yours) on number sense, number recognition through 100, counting through 100, skip counting, one more/one less, ten more/ten less. No judgement here at all, I am just trying to understand, because I am considering diving right into that first to get a solid foundation and then go on to addition. Perhaps it's simply a developmental concern?
2- Do you have any specific Curriculums for Math that you recommend for Common Core? Or do you only use your teacher created resources?
I think that is all my questions for now. I thank you in advance for taking the time to read my email and any response you may have time to drum up.
Thanks so much!
