Monday Meeting

It's always nice when the meeting you attend is worth all the extra effort of preparing sub plans.  Here in Oklahoma we're easing into the Common Core Standards. Kindergarten and first have begun using them.  Next year second will take them on.

The workshop today was on the topic of complementing science instruction with the CC literacy standards.  Tiffany Neill, our Oklahoma Department of Education's Director of Science and Health Education, gave a very informative and fun presentation.  I loved her common sense approach to CCS, as well as the classroom-ready teaching strategies and resource information she shared.

  1. It's VERY interesting how each state/community is tackling the CC transition. I really hope it does all that it's supposed to, because we cherish the idea.
