Interactive Notebook Guides have changed my classroom! Use these sheets to structure you mini-lessons or small group rotations. Students can use their own sheet to work alongside you as you teach. The lessons in this unit all correspond with EnVision Math Unit 7. However, these guided lessons will be helpful even if you don’t use EnVision.
What each guide includes
→ learning target in kid friendly language
→ organized scaffolded notes
→ guided practice problems increasing in rigor
→ key vocabulary
→ student self-reflection.
Lesson in this unit:
- What is Division
- What are Remainders
- Using multiplication to divide
- Repeated subtraction to divide
- Using pictures and arrays to divide
- Picking appropriate equations
- Creating division story problems
Why these sheets:
Before using these guided lesson guides I was finding my student's math notebooks to be a jumbled mess! I wanted their notebooks to be a place were they could practice new math skills, reflect on their learning, as well as, serve as a reference point to remind them of past lessons. However, since using these interactive lesson guides, I have seen a marked increase in student learning and notebook use! My students are constantly referencing their journals, asking me specific questions about concepts they are confused on, and are able to track their own understanding and growth towards standard. Not to mention they have helped me by keeping their journals organized, as well as, quickly assess what they know.
How to Use:
- Students cut and glue these sheets into their journal before each lesson. I either use the questions on the sheets to teach a mini-lesson or use them to in small group rotations.
-Don't use journals? Simply 3-hole punch them, put them in a binder or organize however you desire.
