    Complete Set of 5 Month-to-Month Curriculum Guides (2010)

    Planning math instruction is a demanding aspect of teaching. Teachers need to have an overall sense of the curriculum for the whole year, of what’s going to be taught each month, and of what specifically to teach each day. The guides in this series make it easy to plan all three. In these all-in-one volumes, teachers get a wealth of ideas, organized by month, for the entire school year, covering everything from learning environment and mathematics insight to investigations, literature-based activities, menus, routines, games, mathematics writing, assessment, and parent communication. The books include reproducibles.
