Math

Lashon Academy will use the Scott Foresman-Addison Wesley enVisionMATH text for Grades K-6 math instruction. The curriculum is aligned with the Common Core State Standards and is based on scientific research on how children learn mathematics as well as on classroom evidence that validates proven reliability. enVisionMATH supports the workshop model and differentiated instruction in a heterogeneous classroom setting. enVisionMATH engages and interests all students with leveled activities for ongoing differentiated instruction.

Topic-specific considerations for ELs, special education students, at-risk, and advanced students enable the teacher to differentiate for the diverse learners in every classroom. enVisionMATH allows students to use their senses in order to understand math. This involves the use of visual aids, math manipulatives, and other sensory activities to count, add and problem-solve. A systematic scope and sequence of teaching

is organized every three weeks to provide important information about students’ strengths and weaknesses relative to the standards.

Lashon Academy will offer a K-6 math curriculum that builds student competency over time in the five mathematics strands outlined in the CA State Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics (Counting and Cardinality, Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Number and Operations in Base Ten, Measurement and Data, and Geometry). Students will learn to communicate mathematically using numeric, graphical, symbolic, and written means. They will practice and apply basic skills and critical thinking skills to solve mathematical problems, construct valid arguments, and appreciate the applications of mathematics.
