Our school district is implementing Investigaiotns in all K-2
classrooms in our district this year and next. Approximately 65 K-2
teachers will be on board by the end of next year. We are finding
that as a full day kindergarten district, our teachers are looking for
"more" in terms of content. We have also noticed that many of the
games and activities are revisited in modules and many of K teachers
feel that it is too repetitifve. As a curriculum office, we are
committed to teaching math conceptually and we realize that this is a
major shift for many of our teachers. We want to make sure that we
aren't "missing" something that the program is offering conceptually
by it's choice and format of activities. We are wondering if other
districts feel that the K program needs to be supplemented when
teaching full day. The 1 and 2 programs have not presented this
issue. There are a few areas that we plan to supplement at 1-2, but
the K issue seems to be larger. Is anyone else feeling this? Thanks
