I’ve been working on road maps for the CCSS for math in K-2, and I’ve got working copies ready for you. A couple points to keep in mind:
This is just one person’s opinion about how the standards could be mapped out over the year. It’s not the only right way. You might not even think it’s the best way.
I have only listed the standards when they are introduced. It’s critical to note that once a skill is introduced, it needs to be reinforced throughout the year. I think it makes the road maps look cleaner though to just see each standard listed once, when it is first introduced.
My primary focus in designing the road maps for K-2 was to ensure saturation of the number and operations standards (CC, OA, NBT), because that’s what I see as the priority in the primary grades. I filled in the measurement (MD) and geometry (G) standards based on personal preference. In other words, there was no strong reason behind doing geometry before measurement in Grades K and 1.
Look for ways to connect multiple standards in your activities. For example, when you’re counting to 1000 in 2nd grade, take the opportunity to also talk about even/odd and place value.
Mastering the basic facts with “fluency” depends on lots of activities composing and decomposing numbers and understanding the relationship between addition and subtraction. Pack as much good math into an activity as you can!
One last thing, you’ll notice that I listed graphing in the first period for all three grade levels. I strongly believe that graphing should be done at least several times a week all year long.
