So, I'm getting ready to go to another CCSS meeting today, but I was thinking about our math meeting last week. We have the standards all over the place and with our testing, they are in every single trimester. But I started wondering...in the perfect world, are the CCSS standards to be covered throughout the year, or by area? For example, our Geometry standards are spread across all 3 trimesters - first they have to know the attributes, then at 3rd, they have to know how to divide the shapes and identify the solids, etc. To me, it seems like we ate stretching a unit too far over the year. But I know now, I feel like I haven't done addition and subtraction justice and we are running out of school year. I know the next 3 weeks are dedicated to money (I can't wait til CCSS where we don't have to stress about money!), and I can do some addition and subtraction, but not like I want. Grrrr! Anyway, those of you that are doing CCSS already, please help a girl out. How do you cover the math standards to where it makes sense for you and your kiddos.
