CanTeach What is Guided Math? - Guided Math Guided Math is similar to Guided Reading in that the teacher puts the students into small groups and the students work on specific standards being taught in centers around the room. You should try your hardest to have all the centers hitting the same topic. Students are placed in ability level groups and taught the standards of the curriculum.

Day 1- Pretest, mini lesson on topic, go over centers, whole group activity to get them thinking about concept (acceleration). FOR PRETEST you could give a 5 question quiz to see what the kids know. Day 2- Centers ** Day 3- Centers (Students will be doing 2 centers each day. 25 minutes per center) ** Day 4- Centers (Aim for about 4-5 kids per group) **
Centre de numération Puisque je suis la "responsable" des centres de numératie dans mon équipe de travail (ma collègue se charge de la littératie), je commence un gros travail d'élaboration des centres de mathématique durant l'été. Pour ce faire, je vous rappelle que je m'inspire du livre L'enseignement des mathématiques; l'élève au centre de son apprentissage. Pour démarrer, je vais commencer très simplement pour ne pas m'éparpiller. Les premiers "ateliers" qui seront présentés dans les centres serviront à vérifier les concepts de base qui sont acquis. Nous commencerons véritablement à la base afin de voir où en sont chacun des élèves et ce qui sera à consolider avec chacun d'eux. Je rappelle que notre objectif cette année est de prioriser la qualité de l'apprentissage plutôt que la quantité. Débutons... Dans ce premier atelier, vous aurez besoin de télécharger les dominos sur le site La maternelle de Moustache. Bonne découverte!
The Kissing Hand (Mrs. Fischer's Kinder~Themes) ~~First Day of School Activity~~ On the first day of school there are mixed emotions everywhere! Some children are thrilled to be at school while others have much difficulty making the home to school transition. I always read the kissing hand with my students that first day. We talk about our fears and hopes about coming to school. We also discuss how moms and dads might feel when their children are away from them. On a large piece of construction paper each child makes a red handprint with paint (handprint goes at the top). Near the end of the day we practice re-telling the story. **Tip~Use a small or medium heart punch to make the small hearts.
A Place Called Kindergarten Math Playground - Online Math Games that Give your Brain a Workout Daily 5 Math & a FREEBIE! After jumping head first into Daily 5 for my literacy time at the start of school, I decided I would take the plunge with math as well. Using Daily 5 for my reading and writing time has had it's kinks, but has been the very best thing I could have done to create a classroom culture grounded in literacy and reading. Until I starting using the Daily 5 structure for my math time about two weeks, my math block went a little like this...I would teach a WHOLE GROUP LESSON or activity for about 20-25 minutes. Then students would all complete the same worksheet or activity at the same time and when they were finished they would go to either me or my assistant and have their work checked. If they needed to correct any, they would go do so. I had previously heard a little about Daily 5 Math from reading on the Sisters' Daily Cafe website, as well as on a few blogs here and there. I use the schedule above most days, unless I am introducing a brand new unit. Daily 5 Math Rotations in action...
Math Problem-Solving Week 1: Getting to Know our Notebooks - Kindergarten Kindergarten Over the next week or so, I plan to post all of my problems for the first nine weeks of school. These problems are just a guide. Every class is different! Some classes need more time to develop basic skills--others are ready to move on more quickly. No matter what problems you choose, be ready to adjust them as you finish your beginning-of-year assessments and get to know your kiddos a little better. I start problem-solving on the very first day of school. Day 1 This problem serves several purposes. Day 2 Day 2 is another fairly easy problem. Day 3 This is a good problem, because there is such a variety of answers. Day 4 This problem introduces pattern blocks. Day 5 This problem introduces unifix (or linker) cubes. When it is time to problem-solve, I demonstrate how to use one hand to grab as many cubes as I can. During mathematicians' chair, call on several children to demonstrate how they counted their cubes. This is not the only time we practice counting in my class!
Mrs. Spatafora’s Kindergarten Blog | Just another day in K! Teaching With Z: First Day of Kindergarten Linky Party Okay, all you marvelous Kindergarten teachers out there; I am calling on you for help! I still have a whole month before school starts (and most of that will be spent setting up my new classroom) but I can't stop wondering about those first few weeks of K, especially the very first day. So If you have a post on your blog about your first day of kindergarten plans then this party is for you! If you don't have a post yet, take the time to write it all down and share with the rest of us. I can't wait to read all of your fantastic ideas! I know it is most common for the creator of a linky party to post her own thoughts and ideas but I haven't taught K for YEARS so I honestly have no idea what my plans will look like for the first few days!
