Math Workshop: When Not to Follow the Teacher Edition
- Grades: 3–5
Once I have completed a math lesson, I decide what to do the next day. If the majority of students in all three groups understood the concept, I will move on to the next lesson with each group. If the low group needs more practice, however, I will spend another day with them on the same concept. I can either move ahead with the other two groups or just do additional enrichment.
There are even times when I feel the entire class could use an extra day on a concept. In this case, I create work for the Independent Practice Station since students would have already completed their Everyday Mathematics journal pages.
