    I have heard conflicting reports on how Everyday Math aligns with the Common Core. I heard one local math teacher said we should get rid of Everyday Math after he/she looked at the Common Core math standards. Does your school use Everyday Math and do you like it? Do you think it works well with the new Common Core?

    As soon as we got into common core we basically threw everyday math out the window- in favor of not even having a math program. We got one this year- Go math. But we basically went through last year without a math program, even though we had ALL the materials for everyday math.

    We use Everyday math with the common core. It's a little tricky to make work but we are working to rearrange lessons and add in additional lessons.

    Most curriculum companies are avoiding redoing their entire collection until more is released with the CCSS (i.e. Testing). So what has happened is that they have created a few supplemental pages or else applied the CCSS to happened to align with their current materials. The consensus is that it is not enough to thoroughly teach the standard requirements.

    There is a need for a lot of supplemental materials.

    Since the state of Idaho decided to pilot the new SBAC tests and not test students using the ISAT tests, we are "unofficially" shelving Everyday Math this school year.

    Speaking from experience of attempting to work on aligning CCS with Everyday all last school year, my team found it fails to meet the needs of focusing on those areas.

    And, yes, I agree, there is a need for a LOT of supplemental materials EM doesn't do well or help students with; such as place value, graphs, and subitizing.
