Everyday Math Questions

I am putting this post out there in hopes of getting some great feedback from all the amazing bloggers out there that are already using the Everyday Math series.

Our district is beginning the conversations of adopting a new math series for the future. Many of us are familiar with EM and would love to move forward with this series. We have lots of questions about implementation though. We are currently using a Houghton Mifflin series and we know that the switch to CCSS would not allow us to continue using this series as it does not meet the more rigorous demands they bring along.

So, that being said, we are curious to hear how other districts have approached the adoption of the EM series. Did you jump in feet first, district wide? Did you begin with Kindergarten one year and move up? Did you begin with a couple of grade levels and add certain aspects of the program into all the other grade levels? Did you get any specific training from The University of Chicago to help you with the implementation. Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated! I am counting on all of you to add some great information!

I just discovered your blog...2 years too late. We just switched from Everyday Math to Envisions Math. Unfortunately we did not start in k first, but in 3,4,5,and 6. So far so good. I will be teaching k/1 next year and will implement it. What I found in teaching 3/4 was it was great, but I needed to supplement it with centers from TPT and other resources. But, I did this with EM too. It is better aligned with the Core in my opinion.
