standardAlabama began to implement new Math standards three years ago. Two years ago brought about new changes in the Reading/Language Arts standards. In my class, I find that students are embracing the new standards. There is a little adjusting, but they are already responding to their reading in amazing ways through writing!

The Alabama State Dept. of Ed. has set up a few new tools to help parents understand the new standards. One tool is “Standard of the Week”. This gives an example of what the standard should look like in practice within our classrooms and helps explain the expectations we are setting for Alabama’s students.

This was last week’s College & Career Ready Standard of the week.


Mrs. Squires found a great article from USA Today about the new math standards. It is worth the read:
