Math MileMarkers Series
Common Core Demystified
"Finally an educational guide to demystify the common core standards! As an after school program coordinator I am always looking for tools to help our staff build upon the lessons the children are learning in the classroom. This book has a fun story to use as a starting point and breaks down the learning standards so even our non proffesional staffers and parents can feel confident in thier ability to promote the common core! Definitely a great tool for all classrooms. Now we just need Ms. Brennan to guide us though the other core subjects!"
Review posted on Amazon, July 2015

Miss Penny Says Prove It!
"the book helps teachers see the ease of using students’ knowledge and interest to lead into a lesson. The detail and analysis that comes from the lesson helps educators understand how the Common Core learning standards can be readily accessed through an activity-driven teaching style rather than a lecture. The contents are directed at educators of the youngest students in formal schooling situations, but the depth of the discussion can be useful for all educators".—Shay Kidd, University of Wyoming–Laramie.
