Teachers and parents reviewed math textbooks and instructional materials before the school board’s recent approval of the materials, which will support K-12 instruction. Here’s a sampling of their feedback:
“I am so happy to see skills/activities that are developmentally appropriate and aligned to the CCSS (Common Core State Standards),” parent Yvonne Spitzer-Velasco wrote regarding the kindergarten materials. Regarding fourth grade materials, she continued, “I think it’s going to be beneficial for my daughter to have bullets with simple strategies listed at the top of her practice book for reference. Overall, I am very impressed with this adoption. Thank you, Textbook Services for all that you do! I really appreciate having the opportunity to view the upcoming textbooks for both of my daughters.”
“I think the committee made a great choice,” wrote Bryant teacher Rose Albanese. “The workbook for kindergarten is very similar to what we have now, but I think it will be easier for the children to handle. I like the individual chapter teacher guides. I also love the assessment guide with chapter tests.”
The newly adopted materials will be used in local schools starting in September.
