I'm excited to say that I think I finally figured it out! I read a great book this summer called Guided Math that I got from Amazon. I know there were a lot of book studies about this book, but I never was ready to read it.
After I read the book, I realized that I already was incorporating a lot of the ideas in my classroom but I didn't label it guided math time. I called it math. So this year I want to include more aspects of the guided math ideas but I am calling it Math Workshop.
I have Practice Facts, Math Game, Meet with the Teacher, Use Manipulatively, Problem Solving, Task Cards, and Test Prep. This way I can meet the needs of my students using class data and NWEA data. I can also differentiate my activities...so excited!
I printed the signs out as a 6 slide on one page. Then I cut them out and laminated them. I also made name cards to put next to each activity. I used my wonderful $1.00 pocket chart from Target. Here is a picture of my finished product.
I'm really excited that I FINALLY figured out how to teach Math this year. I'll let you all know once the school year is going to see if it is working out. What do you think????
