Planning for Guided Math is now simple!
I created this pack in response to my former colleague's requests. Teachers are now required to implement guided math, but are overwhelmed at the amount of prep that can be required- especially as they are learning the guided math structure themselves! So this pack was born.
This pack contains all the materials needed to implement guided math or math workshop while teaching place value. All the materials needed to teach (excluding manipulatives) are included and were intentionally created to be as low prep as possible. All the activities are easily differentiated by the size of the numbers (two or three-digits) and differentiation for games and groups is included.
Included in this pack:
* Seven pre/posttests-
The assessments are one page, with the left side being the pretest and the right side being the posttest to reduce copies. I created these short assessments so the teacher can give the pretest at the beginning of the week and use the results to create guided math groups for the week. Then, the teacher can administer the post test to see student progress and recreate groups as needed. Answer keys are included.
* Six standards based lessons/ activities-
The lessons/ activities are perfect for small groups. They are directly related to remediating the pre/ post tests and the standards. All printable materials (including two interactive notebook pages) are included. However, please note that the teacher will need to provide manipulatives such as base ten blocks, white boards, dry erase makers, and an unblown up balloon.
* Five posters-
Color posters with definitions and examples of the terms digits, standard form, written form, value of a digit and expanded form.
* Eight word problems-
These are perfect for math journaling. There are eight identical problems to one page to reduce the amount of copies to create a class set. Students cut out the word problem and glue it to the top of the page in their math journals. An example photograph is provided. This would be an excellent (low prep) addition to math centers.
* Five center games-
These are extremely low prep! Games cover the concepts: Value of a Digit, Expanded Form, Written Form, Base Ten Blocks, and Comparing Two and Three Digit Numbers. The directions for all the games are identical. The only materials needed are cards and the recording sheet. The cards can be reused for all the same games (except for the Value of a Digit game that requires its own set of cards) so that the teacher does not need to continually recreate game pieces. Answer keys are included.
* Seven Independent Math Worksheets-
These worksheets are directly correlated to the standards and to the pre/post assessments included in this pack. They would be perfect for independent seat work or to use as remediation for students still struggling with the concept. Answer keys are included.
* Two Hands– On Activities-
Two hands on activities are included. In the first activity, students use base ten block to creature a creature and then record the total number in standard, written, and expanded form as well as the value of each digit. A sample photograph and scoring rubric is included. In the second activity, students create a two pocket folder from a sheet of construction paper. Then, on a worksheet with several boxes, students write the value of each digit of the underlined digit and record in the box. Finally, students cut out each of the boxes and compare the total number to the number on each pocket. A sample photograph and scoring rubric is included.
Please note that base ten blocks are referred to as hundreds “flats,” tens “rods,” and ones “cubes” or “units.” I hope this pack makes your math block as smooth as possible!
Standards Addressed in this Unit:
This pack contains materials to teach the following 2nd grade Common Core Standards.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.NBT.A.1- Understand that the three digits of a three-digit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones; e.g., 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones. Understand the following as special cases:
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.NBT.A.1.A- 100 can be thought of as a bundle of ten tens — called a "hundred."
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.NBT.A.1.B- The numbers 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine hundreds (and 0 tens and 0 ones).
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.NBT.A.3- Read and write numbers to 1000 using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.NBT.A.4- Compare two three-digit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
