Math: Singapore Math, Engage NY (TBD) and/or supports.

  • Math concepts will be woven into the ELA + Science/Engineering, and ELA + Social Studies driven expeditions at every opportunity, to experience real-world, applied understandings.
  • Some students will be learning the 1st grade content standards, while others will learn the 2nd grade content standards.
  • Because we have blended grade teams of teachers at HCC, students will have the support they need to reach mastery of grade level content.
  • Students may advance at their own pace, and we will work with them to reach proficiency for each standard.
  • If a student is advanced, they may spend Math Connect time with a 3rd-4th grade group, or they may learn the advanced concepts within a group in their same blended grade.
