Our time is divided between whole group, small group, and individual instruction.  We begin each lesson by reviewing concepts previously taught and needed for skill building.  After a whole group lesson, students either work independently, in pairs, or in small groups to practice the new concepts and skills.  We use many resources to support our math curriculum including the Larry Leutzinger books, NCTM books based on the content standards, the GoMath! Series, and various internet sources as well as lessons we’ve created over the years. We align our curriculum with the Iowa Core.  Students participate in daily fact practice of addition and subtraction.
