Launching Guided Math (A 10-Day Plan for the First 2 Weeks of School)

Grade Levels
PDF (802 KB|5 pages)


You can use this outline to teach your students how to participate in small group math instruction. This can be used for the first two weeks of school or whenever you first start guided math in your classroom. You may need to modify based on your students' ages and abilities, but this gives you an idea of how to release the responsibility to them. With successful guided math groups, your students should be able to work independently and should know what to do/where to go. They should know what to work on if they finish something early, and where to go for help. It is essential to establish organized routines before moving on to guided math instruction.
