I used to time for a certain time but now I just pull the lowest group first with more time with me. At seat is problem solving or a spiral, I'm the lesson, hands on is a game or review of unit, and math facts changes between activities - flash cards, roll and cover, your math mats, mixed facts, etc. We do calendar/ morning math at the beginning of the day. I love math workshop!

I gave the new math curriculum a shot and it just wasn't working for me. One problem was that it wasn't allowing me any time to work with groups. I never really felt like I knew how my kids were progressing. One question- are you doing any whole group teaching other than your calendar math? Or is the math lesson being taught in small groups? I'm having trouble deciding if I want to teach a short whole group lesson and then break them off into the workshop or just teach the lesson in small groups and tailor it depending on my students' needs and abilities. I would love to hear more about this.<br />RealOCteachershttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10666018721012946556noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3633682260880990043.post-82825239540602542752014-01-10T17:03:53.304-08:002014-01-10T17:03:53.304-08:00Thanks for sharing!

I am a huge fan of math workshop and am constantly tweaking it to fit my students' needs. Currently my students participate in five centers per week - guided math, vocabulary, problem solving, independent work and fluency. We also use your calendar math for our warm-up. Quick question, how do you go over the calendar math each day?<br /><br />Melissa O'Bryan<br /><a href="www.wildaboutfifthgrade.blogspot.com" rel="nofollow">Wild About Fifth Grade</a>Melissa O'Bryanhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06341206961178308887noreply@blogger.com
