Beginning of Year Lessons

Lessons to support K-5 learning

Each of the lessons below are from the illuminations site and are aligned to the NCTM content and process standards. When you go to the link, the overview explains the unit and then tabs are provided for each lesson. The amount of time for the lesson, the standards being met and all resources are provided to support the learning. I thought this might answer those questions of – “Where do I go from here?” “What next?” The lessons are organized by grade level – K-5.
If you have a particular lesson coming up that you would like me to help find lessons for, please email me.
