Free Resource Aligns K-5 Math Activities with Common Core

A newly published free resource from Responsive Classroom supports elementary teachers’ efforts to address Common Core standards and practices in math using the fun activities in its award-winning book Doing Math in Morning Meeting: 150 Quick Activities that Connect to Your Curriculum.

Common CoreEach activity in Doing Math in Morning Meeting (originally published in 2010) correlates with one or more of the Common Core K-5 standards and practices for mathematics, which emphasize critical thinking and collaborative learning. The new downloadable reference guide shows these correlations. For each grade, K−5, the guide is divided into three parts for ease of use:

  • by Activity, showing which Common Core standards and practices each activity can help address
  • by Common Core Practice, showing which activities can be used to help address particular practices
  • by Common Core Standard, showing which activities can be used to help address particular standards

According to the book’s co-author Margaret Berry Wilson, “We packed every activity with learning opportunities as well as making them fun, engaging, and community-building. The way the new guide shows alignments with the Common Core is going to help a lot of teachers, and I’m excited that it will also help them get even more use out of a book they may already own.”

Doing Math in Morning Meeting is one of the most popular Responsive Classroom books. It received a Distinguished Achievement Awardfrom the Association of Educational Publishers and a bronze “IPPY” from Independent Publisher.
