Love this blog. So frustrated with Seattle public schools right now. My child is using textbook "MyMath" instead of math in focus but at least not doing random worksheets from multiple sources ...yet
I would suggest you purchase either a Saxon book or a JUMP Math book.
JUMP math .org has some good free resources

Thank you. Will do!
Be sure and notice the chaotic jumping about the textbook as the Kindergarten teacher proceeds through the 13 units on the new "Scope and Sequence". The planned chaos for other grades is similar. {{ District admin clearly does not like the sequence of topics in Math in Focus }}

It is now mid October and the SPS is still keeping parents in the dark about huge elementary school math changes.

Great teacher in tears last night on the issue. Told....not asked....to drop MIF and adopt downtown's new worksheet based class flow and materials. Teacher told specifically this is to achieve high SBAC scores.
Using the "Grade Level Year at a Glance" information above, parents can finally see what is going on with elementary school math.
This JSCEE staff math action seems similar to a "coup d'état" .
Are the Directors complicit in this?
Are the Directors unaware?
Do the Directors even care?
Beats me.
