First Grade in Action Video

This is an exceptional 24 minute video on CPalms which highlights the 8 Mathematical Practice (process standards) and shares ideas for word problems, communicating, and Routines. I recommend watching it in the segments as outlined on the note taking key and stop at each segment for teacher discussion and to chart implementation implications.

If you had 2-3 hours, I would provide a blank note taking tool and have teachers watch the video and take their own notes. In my case, time was not a luxury so the note taking tool is provided so discussion is richer.
