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. Differentiation is achieved as students are in different groups and instruction is changed to hit the needs of the student.

Guided Math Planning Sheet Guided Math Planning Sheet 2 Download Guided Math Plan 3 The first thing I say is make it work for you. 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 4- Centers (Aim for about 4-5 kids per group) **

The smallest penguin is the Fairy Penguin The largest penguin is the Emperor Penguin. We also completed a K-W-L chart on our penguin unit.
