Chets Creek Elementary is a K-5 professional learning community with 1,300 learners in Jacksonville, FL. Coaching Chronicles was first created when I served as the school's Instructional Coach (2004-2011). I have since served as a third grade learning leader(2011-2013), and am now the school's Assistant Principal. Regardless of my role, this blog shares snippets of our learning journey and Creek Life.

EDC Math Videotapes Grade 3 & Grade 1
Every Day Counts® Calendar Math is a supplementary curriculum tool that we use in addition to our core curriculum TERC Math Investigations. These two programs fit nicely together to form our 75 minute math block. Every Day Counts Calendar Math reviews, previews, and reinforces NCTM grade level standards.
As a source of professional development within our school, CCE teachers have graciously agreed to be videotaped to share their instructional practices with others. The Every Day Counts Calendar Math lesson plans are read and implemented by each of our teachers, but implementation may look slightly different in each classroom. Therefore, the videotaping of lessons each month assists all of our teachers in reflection of their own practices, and allows them to virtually visit one another's classrooms.
