Math Workshop: Group Rotation #2

By Beth Newingham on April 30, 2013
  • Grades: 3–5

After Group Rotation #1 of my Math Workshop, each group moves to a different station.

The low group moves right from the Work With Teacher Station to their own desks at the Independent Practice Station to finish the journal pages we started together. When they finish those, they can then complete the math boxes for the day. I have them move to the Independent Practice Station right after working with me so that the new concepts are fresh in their minds.

The medium group now comes to me at the Work With Teacher Station. I always plan to teach the lesson from the book to the medium group. But they will sometimes catch on quickly and need to be challenged. If this happens, I can either do some enrichment with them or just challenge them by giving them some problems similar to the ones in the lesson, but making them a little more difficult.

I have a set of portable dry erase boards at my station, so students can work right on their laps. I like this because they are working right in front of me, and I can immediately see how they are doing. This group will usually start the journal pages with me, but they will complete most of the work independently at their desks if I feel they are understanding the concept.

The high group goes to the Games Station to continue practicing the concepts that were introduced in their journal pages.
