Next year my school district is having everyone switch over to the EngageNY Math Common Core Curriculum. I started using it the second half of last year because I knew that and wanted to get a feel for it so I could start this year strong. Unfortunately, I felt that there were some gaps. Our previous curriculum allowed us to introduce lessons to my students via the Smartboard and interactive activities. Since EngageNY does not have that I was constantly switching between websites like BrainPopJr. for math videos and TES-Math for games. I also had to unplug the cord from my laptop and plug in my DocCam to show the students an eample of how to do their Problem Sets. After enough frustration, I decided that over Summer break I would make Smartboard Lessons.
I included links to several lessons/games to use on the computer or Smartboard.
I listed materials needed for the teacher and students for Concept Development.
I copied the Application Problem for students to do on their individual whiteboards and added interactive materials (in this case a pencil <infinity cloner> that can be used for demonstration on the Smartboard).
I also added screenshots of the Problem Sets for modeling ... and much more!
