Here's a bank of items to support students
 I have started a page for students, parents, and teachers which will feature math videos to support Common Core Math Instruction and the Engage NY Modules and instruction. It is linked as a tab on the Juniper webpage, and below.

 Our district has been searching for types of curriculum that support the Common Core State Standards in all curricular areas, and is recommending teachers use the most applicable parts of the Engage NY Modules to support our students becoming 21st Century Learners and community members. Some of the videos I shared on the linked page above, are from this website. You will need to download Vimeo Player ( https://player.vimeo.com ) to view them.

 "Personalized Learning for the Common Core" is their motto! 
 We've been using Math Rocks word problems to support multiple step problem solving at all grade levels here at Juniper, combined with the idea of doing a Number Talk and letting students share responses and problem solving strategies. This has helped develop our Mathematical Practice Standards of: (1) Making sense of problems and persevering in solving them and (3) Constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others.
Here is an example:  Math Coach Resources  Here is a link to another coach's page, where she has created and is sharing math wall resources for each grade level. These resources will support the use of academic math vocabulary, and give ELL's the language they need to succeed in school!
