Question Detail

I understand that the CCSS do not tell how to teach the standards, but I'm looking for some direction in teaching the sequence of skills for math in first grade. I believe the CCSS details the scope for each domain, but are we trying to teach addition sums to 20 and then come back to it later in the year and then teach sums to 100, or continue the sequence after mastery of 20?

      Many of the individual states and districts have begun to put together curriculum mapping documents that show a scope and sequence for teaching the standards. One state that I've looked to for guidance is Georgia (see their Department of Ed website). EngageNY is also a wealth of information. That being said, the beauty of the Common Core is that teachers are recognized as the professionals they are and not every pacing guide or curriculum map will work for all students. There are many great resources to draw from, but you should also use your professional judgement and what you know about your students to make decisions about sequence and pacing.
