With a new school year come many new goals. One of my goals is to implement math workshop. I really do enjoy teaching with the workshop model and I have tried it in the past with math. While I enjoyed it, it just was difficult for me to remain consistent. I would try a different way every 2 weeks it seemed! I struggled with finding a system that worked best for me and my students. I want this year to be different.
I set out to get my self organized and wanted to begin with a guided math binder much like my guided reading and conference binder. I really needed a way to help keep myself organized, on track, and I needed a way to track student progress, too.
That evolved into making a schedule for small groups.
