Welcome to my Guest Blogger - Rachel
This post is super special! I am thrilled to have a guest blogger here on my site! I reached out to my fellow teachers asking if they would be willing to share their experiences using the Eureka Math/Engage NY Math curriculum. I wanted others to benefit and learn their tips and tricks. I was thrilled when Rachel reached out to me and was willing to share what she has learned. Rachel and I worked together in a Title I public school a few years ago, and she has since become a home-school mom and is STILL using the program, which speaks volumes to me! When Rachel generously agreed to write about her experiences using Engage NY/Eureka math at home, I sent her the lessons I created for classroom teachers to see if they might be useful in some way to her as a home-school parent, and she loved them!

Eureka is one of the most widely adopted math curriculums in the country, so naturally, there are many resources available to help make you more successful with teaching this curriculum! Today I wanted to highlight a few of these resources for you.
Typically, the concept development starts with modeling, then moves to a more guided practice, and finally to independent practice. You will also notice that the problems tend to progress from easier to harder as the lesson continues.
Students may start out with reviewing a related skill that they have previously learned. The teacher will then demonstrate the new skill, talking through the process and asking questions as they go.
Eureka employs a 3 part strategy to solve word problems which students will use on the application problems. The 3 part strategy is Read, Draw, Write - or RDW.
