The Facts on the Facts! Students should master addition and subtraction facts by the end of 2 nd grade. Students should master Multiplication and division facts by the end of 3 rd grade. We will integrate our Envisions Math series with the State provided MODULES.
Read as much non-fiction as fiction. Learn about the world by reading. Read more challenging material closely. Discuss reading using evidence. Write non-fiction using evidence. Increase academic vocabulary. Full Implementation of Module 1 at all grade levels. Tri Semester Report card based upon Standard specific criteria. Common planning time to allow for continued dialog during this implementation. These Common Core “Shifts” will be implemented using NYS provided MODULES and other resources.
