This binder is intended to be used during your guided math small groups or whole group lesson. I make a binder for each student at my table (about 5) and one for myself. (You could also make a binder for each student in your class. This might be best for COVID-19 accommodations or distance learning. I have also included a folder of JPEGs of each instructional mat for you to insert in your distance learning assignments.) I print each page and insert them in numerical order in plastic sheet protectors. I also put a dry erase board in the front pocket.
The idea is for each student to have access to an instructional work mat for the skill we are working on during that small or whole group lesson. I created work mats for all skills that we cover in our second grade curriculum. I have the binder already out for each student if we are using it during small groups. I just tell them the page I want them to turn to and we get started.
I model in my own binder. I will give them the problem, and they use their work mat and dry erase marker to solve the problem we are working on. If there is not enough space on the work mat, they can pull out the small dry erase board to work on.
