Math Workshop Series
The Math Workshop series for grades K–5 is designed to give teachers everything they need to get started with the Math Workshop method.
Each 192-page book contains 28 complete lessons, a comprehensive introduction section, and a set of reproducible activity templates. Designed to work with any curriculum, the units include all of the pieces needed for a successful guided math block—just grab the manipulatives and you’re ready to teach.
Give students the direct, leveled instruction and practice opportunities they need to stay engaged and be successful in math this year.
Each leveled small-group lesson comes with a targeted practice sheet. The discreet level indicators make sure students get practice at their precise level without the stigma of being in the ‘low’ group. Circles, squares, and triangles keep teachers organized and students focused on learning.
Critical Thinking Elements
Use the Math Talk and Journal Prompt sections to encourage deeper learning and critical thinking. These components of a modern math classroom take each lesson beyond rote learning so students can truly synthesize learning and prove the depth of their knowledge.
Low- and No-Prep Activities
The activity included with each lesson is low- or no-prep so you can spend your time teaching, rather than copying, laminating, and cutting. They are perfect for slipping into dry-erase pockets. Simply copy and place the activity in a center with the listed materials, and your rotations for the week are done.
