I am not here to say “Common Core Math” is perfect, nothing ever is, but it is a step in the right direction. Kids are thinking (shoot even us parents are thinking as we help them with this crazy homework), they are engaged and understanding concepts of numbers better. Students are talking about numbers, looking at numbers in our everyday world, seeing how they affect them regularly, isn’t this what we want for our kids?
How about we stop judging the book by its cover, give this “Common Core Math” some time, be patient and see the outcomes before passing judgment. I think we all might be a little surprised and impressed with what our students can do 5 years from now. I am only so lucky to be able to see it in the making. #commoncoremath #lusded #penrynrocks #penrynprincipal
