Do any of you use Everyday Math as your math curriculum? I piloted it this year in my building and I really liked it- our old math curriculum was pretty archaic and I love how EM makes kids much more nimble with numbers!
I especially loved how they set up their assessments. At the beginning of each, there is a self-assessment and I actually make several copies of this to use throughout the unit. We will fill one out at the beginning and then touch base with it after lessons that cover one of the major topics listed.
I was making some posters of these great doodles when I came across Alison's blog, Eberopolis. She has a great anchor chart posted and I loved the titles she gave to each of the levels:
These titles were the missing pieces that I needed to help make it all come together! Plus, I liked her "Novice" category- at the beginning of some units, students have never heard of the concept, so it was very fitting.
I decided to make some posters to hang in the classroom and extend this concept past math class. Here's the result:
I am really liking this new format and hope you do, too! Want to get your own copy? Click the image above or HERE to get yours for free!
