The purpose of this website is to provide one place for Elementary teachers to access resources for teaching Common Core math standards.
Click on your grade level to find specific resources for your teaching context.  Within each grade level there is a sub page for each Domain in your grade level. Formative assessment tasks are available for every standard on the Domain subpages.  Each grade level offers an opportunity for teachers to converse in a blog about teaching current grade level standards.

Review example problems to help understand each CCSS standard

This site provides a long list of CCSS vocabulary for each grade level .  For a condensed version sorted by domain click here.

Content Emphases by Cluster
This document helps teachers identify which clusters require greater emphasis on the Smarter Balanced Assessment.  Similar to power standards.


The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. These documents were spliced together and then sliced into grade level standards.








 
Strategies for Teaching Mathematics



https://www.teachingchannel.org/videos/student-participation-strategy

Engage students in critical thinking by having them decide in small groups which strategies are correct/incorrect and explain why. Watch at 5:00 for a description of strategy

Build in supports to help students work independently


http://collaborativemathproject.wikispaces.com/Math+Focus+Walls

Consider building a math focus wall for your unit of instruction.  The Focus Wall can be a strategy to reengage students with targets, develop vocabulary, use visuals, number lines, 100's charts, ten's frames, and math strategies.  Help students focus on important standards at their grade level. See this example focusing on unit goals
