Math Workshop's Daily Schedule

By Beth Newingham on May 2, 2013
  • Grades: 3–5

We have one hour and 20 minutes scheduled for Math Workshop each day (80 minutes). Below is exactly what we do during that precious time.

Daily Math Review: (8–10 minutes)
This is a student-led, math review activity.

Lesson Preview and Directions: (5–8 minutes)
During this time, I briefly introduce the concept I will be teaching for the day, specify the journal pages students will be completing in their math journals, announce any materials they will need to do their daily work (rulers, protractors, etc.), and explain the game that students will be playing at the Games Station (if necessary).

Rotation #1: (20 minutes)
Rotation #2: (20 minutes)
Rotation #3: (20 minutes)

Closing: (5 minutes)
At the end of math, I call the class back together quickly to reinforce the day's concept. If there is time, we sometimes correct the daily math journal page as a class.
