    Everyday as well...

    I also use the Everyday Mathematics program with my fifth graders. It is a wonderful program that includes everything you need, leaving little planning for the teachers. Each lesson includes a morning math message, a lesson, some practice pages, a review game, a math box (revisiting old skills, and a Study Link pushing new skills even farther.

    I agree with the last poster who said that it should start in the younger grades and move up with the classes. This program is completely spiraling, meaning that it continuously revisits old concepts. A ton of time is never spent on one skill, because if some children do not understand it the first time, they will get it as it is reviewed.

    I absolutely love this program, but the one problem is that it is hard for the parents. The students learn very modern ways to do multiplcation, division, etc. The parents are often confused by this and need some advance warning and possibly some handouts to go home explaining how these "new" methods work. If you have any questions, email me. I'd be glad to help!
