I am a new first grade teacher in Rochester, MI and I was very intrigued by your math workshop. Right now, I'm struggling with a range of students at very different math levels. My question is, do you teach the games throughout the year during your rotation while they are with you at "Meet the Teacher"? In first grade, I'm worried if I teach it in the 5-8 minute review at the beginning it will not be enough time for them. Also, if you look at your "high" kids math journals when they come to you...are they still obligated to correct their journal pages when you correct them at the end of the rotations? Or are they working on something else? Thank you for your time!
