Example of Breaking Down a Math Standard

This kindergarten teacher gives an example of how she broke down an initially intimidating requirement under the new Common Core State Standards so that she and her colleagues could better relate the Common Core to their students and expand upon their current approach to teaching number sense.

  • Have you worked to customize the Common Core State Standards to fit your instructional style, as well as the needs of your students (developmental, cultural, language, etc.)?  Can you think of an example of how you broke down a standard in order to meet those goals?
