Elementary Mathematics Wikipage

Purpose of this wiki:

The purpose of this elementary math wiki is to have a centralized location for all elementary teachers in the Molalla RIver School DIstrict to access mathematical information, content and resources. On the wiki you will find information about the math common core state standards, district curriculum maps, CA's (Common Assessments), SA's (Summative Assessments), word walls, My Math, IXL, computational snapshots, online math resources, cool videos, a riddle of the month, OAKS resources and math inservice agendas. Much more is being added all the time, so come back soon.

Math Common Core State Standards:

The state of Oregon voted to adopt the NEW Common Core State Standards(CCSS) on October 29, 2010. At this point 43 states have adopted the math standards. The CCSS will replace the old Oregon standards starting with the current academic year. We were one of the first districts in the state to adopt math materials that reflect the CCSS exclusively (see MyMath below). The math CCSS's can be found at: http://www.corestandards.org/the-standards/mathematics. You can also find the CCSS embedded in our district curriculum maps by grade level. Starting this year our students will be taking the NEW Smarter Balanced Assessment.

NEW Curriculum Maps:

In the summer of 2012 Molalla River School District curriculum maps were augmented to reflect our new math adoption, My Math. The curriculum maps include a daily block schedule with important dates highlighted, Common Core State Standard coverage, vocabulary, expectations for student learning, IXL alignment to the content, mathematical practices utilized and a performance task for each chapter. Our goal as a district is to continually refine the curriculum maps to reflect best instructional practices, teacher needs and current state expectations.

CA's - Common Assessments:
All teachers in Molalla River School District are giving common assessments for each chapter in My Math. We will use the data collected to drive quality instruction and student performance. To find the common assessments for each grade level, click on the links below:
Kinder Common Assessments
1st Grade Common Assessments
2nd Grade Common Assessments
3rd Grade Common Assessments
4th Grade Common Assessments
5th Grade Common Assessments

SA's - Summative Assessments:
Based on the common assessments from above, Molalla River School District is creating summative assessments. These summative assessments will be given in the fall and the spring to show growth for each student over the academic year. Problems on the summative assessments are pulled from the common assessments. Click the link below to access the summative assessments by grade:
Summative Assessments

UPDATE: The current version of the summative assessment for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade does not reflect all the common core state standards. These assessments will change prior to the 2014/2015 academic year when students are assessed by the state through Smarter Balance.

My Math Vocabulary Word Walls:

Vocabulary development is essential to our students' success in the My Math program. Click the link below to find all the vocabulary words ready to print by grade level. NOTE: If you create a word wall please let me know so I can post pictures of cool examples. Thanks!

My Math Information:

"My Math" is a common-core aligned math curriculum that is published by McGraw-Hill.
Molalla River School District adopted My Math as the primary math program in the Spring of 2012.
An overview of the My Math program can be found at:

IXL Information:

IXL is now available for all elementary math students in the district. If you need your username or password please contact your child's teacher.
Our district IXL login screen is located at:

IXL is a comprehensive, standards-aligned math program offering unlimited practice in thousands of skills. One of the best things about IXL is that students can access it from school and from home! To get unlimited practice, tracking, and awards, be sure to sign in to your IXL account! Enter your username and password on our login page and click "Sign in." After signing in, click the Practice tab to select skills to practice. You can place your mouse over any skill to see a sample question. Or, click the Awards tab to begin conquering math challenges and uncovering prizes!

Computational Snapshots:

Computational snapshots is an assessment program within Molalla River School DIstrict designed to increase the computational speed of K-5 students throughout the district. For more information please check out this powerpoint presentation:
