**L**esson Structure: Math lessons will follow this daily structure- Routines 15-25 minutes
- Conceptual Learning 30 min- 45 min.

*70% of instructional time should focus on non-negotiables - Guided Practice 15 min- 20 min.
- Take each concept through the all levels of knowing
- Intuitive: Build on what they know
- Concrete: Use manipulatives - Cuisenaire rods, subitizing cards, dice, dominoes, base ten
- Pictorial/Representational - Use number line for operations, draw what the rods show

*Leads to procedural level - Abstract/Procedural (standard algorithm)
- Application
- Communication
- Teach and use addition and multiplication strategies In this instructional progression:
- Choral
- Individual student
- 2 seconds/problem = ‘knowing’
- Timed written assessment
- 3 seconds/problem = ‘knowing’
- Teach, use, and expect appropriate math language
- Use other opportunities to discuss/practice math
- Assessments
- Fact Fluency Assessments: Addition, Multiplication (Until mastered, then mixed review quarterly)
- Quarterly summative assessments
- Weekly Collaboration with teams
- Materials
- Students in Grades 3-6 will use Math Notebooks with graph paper
- Use graph paper to assure correct alignment of digits.
- Use concrete manipulatives (specifically Cuisenaire rods and base ten blocks) as students move through the concrete level of knowing for each new concept.
- Communicate with parents
- Be familiar with Parent Handbook -connecting report card stems to common core
- Include in weekly newsletter, as needed, updates explaining skills/strategies being taught, math language and ideas for practice at home including games and websites
- Homework should have three components:
- Cumulative components
- A true copy of what was done that day- Very similar practice
- Slight variant of main lesson
