CCSS SMP 2 Reason Abstractly and Quantitatively


What Is It All About?

This week, we’re digging deep again- one last push of professional development before the holidays officially kick off! Today we’re looking at SMP 2 from the Common Core.

Lots of teachers have shared with me that they are using these videos in their faculty meetings to get the dialogue going about what these standards look like at each grade level. I LOVE that idea. That’s a HUGE part of why I don’t tell you all the “answers.”  I want YOU and your colleagues to dig deep, decide on the meaning, and have profound professional discussion.

In other words, have some fun getting down and dirty with your teaching practices!

If you missed my “Wynn’s Zap of Wisdom” email this week, you missed my story about my son and the miracle of science. This story impacts your mindset for this video. Don’t miss another episode. Be sure to join the International Academy of Bee Sharp Teachers. That’s the only way to get the personal stuff I only share in email.

I look forward to seeing you in the Academy,



PS- Had an ah-ha? Tell me all about it in the comments section below.

    After viewing CCSS SMP #3, I understood the wording of the practice 2 Standard. It helps by issuing the handouts to define paragraphs. It will help me in my lesson planning for beginning adult math students.
    Thank You!
