Bacich utilizes the Eureka Math Story of Units as our core math curriculum.   This program provides the scope and sequence regarding concepts, as well as continuity in our math program from kindergarten through fifth grade.  We utilize many resources to engage students in the math practices in addition to utilizing the Eureka Math materials.

Eureka Math newsletters and more are available in Spanish at this Pinterest board.
