I recently spoke with a friend about the possibilities of trying a math workshop approach in the classroom. My district uses Everyday Math. While I love the idea of really reaching my math students at their instructional levels, I can’t wrap my brain around exactly how this would all tie together with Everyday Math.
Tonight I was looking around at other blogs and I stopped over at Primary Inspired. She mentioned that several bloggers were getting together to do a book study on Guided Math. This seems like a great (and safe) place to dive in, gather more information, ask questions, and try to put all the pieces together. They are starting chapter one on June 11th. Hmm….do I have time to get my hands on a copy of the book (and read a chapter) before June 11th?
Are you using a Math Workshop or Guided Math approach? If you are using Everyday Math with a Math Workshop/Guided Math approach, I am most curious to know how/when you have your students completing math boxes.
If you do not use Everyday Math, I would still love to hear your thoughts and ideas for making this run smoothly and effectively.
