# I Know

### Monday, September 01, 2014

I've spent more time this weekend working on lesson plans and school activities than anything else. At least I've made a dent in it...and it's kept me from eating...too busy. I still plan to reward myself with a evening walk with hubby in a couple of hours, if the temps drop under the 90's.

Common Core would want students to solve this problem and explain the answer using an equation, again with pictures, and again using words.

Not a fan of Common core. I think we need to get back to the three "R's", reading, writing and arithmetic.

I am most definitely not a fan of common core. This is why our students are falling so far behind, not to mention why a good marjority of parents can no longer help their kids with homework. I feel for the teachers who are loaded down with all this extra work and basically forced to teach this way. It really takes something special to be an educator these days.

I can follow the pattern, and probably explain in words or equations, but pictures? seriously?
Hope your walk was great! We have had thunderstorms here all evening, and they are still going strong!

I can understand the huge backlash against common core. Not a clue what to do with this pic.

I got the answer, at least I think I did... but I am at a loss as to how to explain the answer three ways... Care to enlighten this old lady?
