This resource will help you implement math workshop effectively and successfully in your primary classroom.
1. Introduction to Math Workshop- Definition and breakdown of math workshop, list of advantages and challenges of using a workshop approach to teach math, and a list of guidelines to keep in mind when starting math workshop.
2. Color Posters Explaining Math Workshop Structure- Five posters that break down each part of math workshop, including: the overall structure of math workshop, the mini-lesson, work time, closing/sharing. These pages can be displayed in your classroom or kept as a reference in your math/lesson planning binder. Also included is a list of ideas for activities to use during independent work time.
3. Creating Anchor Charts- Tips and examples of how to create effective anchor charts as part of your math workshop mini-lessons.
4. List of Procedural Mini-Lessons- List of 11 procedural mini-lessons that are suggested to teach as you implement a workshop approach to teaching math.
5. Anchor Charts- For every procedural mini-lesson, there is at least one color poster that you can use to display with your anchor chart. Some mini-lessons have multiple color pages for you to print and display.
6. Accountability with Math Workshop- Ideas for how to keep your kiddos accountable during math workshop! Included are four different recording sheets that students can fill out to track their work for the day/week. You could also use these recording sheets as exit tickets to informally assess the students’ understanding of the lesson.
7. Math Workshop Bulletin Board Display- I explain how to display the posters to create a math workshop rotation bulletin board. Color posters for the following rotations are included: teacher time, manipulatives and games, on my own, and practice math facts.
8. List of Activities for Each Rotation- There is a color poster with a shape to print and display for your students. On these posters, you can write the list of activities/options for the students to complete at each rotation. The shapes on the posters are as follows: parallelogram, octagon, trapezoid, hexagon.
9. Math Groups Display- Print these color posters to help the students identify the group they are in. Directions and a picture are included to explain the math group display.
10. Organizing Math Materials- Print the color shape posters (four ½ sheet posters) and post it next to the bin of materials that are available for each rotation.
