    My district used to use Everyday mathematics as our K-5 math curriculum. I could see how much sense the spiraling of concepts made for the kids. It alleviated a lot of stress and pressure for struggling students – they knew we would come back to the concepts again. I could see the deeper retention happen. Unfortunately when we went to CCSS spiraling went by the wayside to cover blocks of standards. This reminds me of the need to do some spiraling of my own for those concepts I know will take more to retain.
