Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are instruction days and Tuesday/Thursday are group days.
Monday's lesson was on ordering various objects by length and Wednesday's lesson was on estimating and measuring objects with nonstandard units.
Group Stations -
1.) seat work - can be leveled or a review activity
2.) center - an activity focusing on the skill being taught (I had a recording page at my centers for accountability)
3.) small group with teacher - the other teachers in my building have leveled groups, but for these lessons, I had the same activity (with a class of 23 with no adult help during math, I know hands-on activities in math are very challenging!)
Tuesday's Groups -
|seat work - deciding which is taller or which is smaller|
|center - sorting pictures by size; recording page was included|
|small group - sorting various objects and describing using the words tallest and smallest|
Thursday's Groups -
|seat work - Annie Moffat's addition/subtraction scoops review activity|
|center - estimating and measuring objects in pictures using nonstandard units|
|small group - estimating and measuring objects using connecting cubes|
Do you use math groups? If so, do you do anything differently? Leave an email address with your comment, as I am giving away one of my measurement packets to a commenter on Saturday morning!
