BILLINGS- Montana schools are in the process of adopting the National Common Core Standards designed to present schools with a clear understanding of what students are expected to learn.
The goal is to give students real world experience that can be applied in their future careers.
Thanks to Q2 and First Interstate Bank's One Class at a Time award, Ms. Angela Shull's first grade class at Big Sky Elementary will have access to interactive math games and activities to help students learn skills using hands-on, team approaches.
The $300 grant money will be used to purchase pattern links, geometric shapes, and number games.
"Anytime you can engage them in fun learning activities in hands on ways, they just grow in their knowledge and they retain more. It makes learning more fun and exciting," Shull said.
