Perfect question! If you download the product preview, it includes a chart that shows the common core standards for each activity. I just looked at it, and there are 10 that are aligned to Kinder CCSS. You can vary a lot of them by using different number cards. For example, begin using an activity with the 1-10 cards. As kids work with larger numbers, you can use the same activity with the 1-20 cards and then the 1-50 cards. Of course you might also have Kinders who are ready for some 1st grade extensions.
To be honest, different teachers and different grade levels at my school do it differently. For the most part, we follow a blend of Debbie Diller and Laney Sammons' Guided Math, with teachers adapted it to what feels comfortable for them. Both those books are great for getting math workshop going. There are actually whole blogs devoted to guided math that would give you a lot more info than I can here. Try Googling Guided Math or Guided Math Blog. Also, check out my blog and you'll find some info, although not real detailed, there. Some teachers who do guided math put several activities in one box. My teachers tend to usually just put one. So the kiddos would go to their assigned station (lots of different management methods), there would be a box, and the activity card and any manipulatives they need to do the activity would be in it. Our kids usually carry their math journals (just a spiral notebook) to the workstations and they usually have to record something, even if it's just a sentence or two about what they learned. I hope that helps some!!
