Common Core MATH

Is anyone else wondering how to help their little ones understand the 8 Math Practices that align with the Common Core Standards?  One way that I have found is to talk to students and refer to them as mathematicians!  We also talk about the things that mathematicians do:

  • Talk about math
  • Explain their thinking
  • Make predictions
  • Work together
  • Compare
  • Make mistakes
  • Record their ideas
  • Change their ideas
  • Check their work
  • Look for challenges

I have created and uploaded a document on Teachers Pay Teachers that address the things that mathematicians do.  If you would like to check it out, click here!
