Many teachers and districts are wanting more problem solving in the primary classrooms. But they also understand the gaps in math instruction when math story problems are 100% of the instruction. Guided Math is a balanced math curriculum that addresses both of these needs.


Guided math workshop is a comprehensive 2nd grade math curriculum I've developed for second grade to balance math instruction. It incorporates all of the Cognitively Guided Math principles I've used for years, plus many of the hands on games and skill activities that are also beneficial for primary students and problem solving heavy curriculums lack.

Find more detailed information on the whats and whys plus the weekly schedule and routine in the preview! I have also included a list of materials and manipulatives needed with links in the preview download! Plus, read more about GMW on the blog!

I have also added a comprehensive 2nd Grade Guided Math Workshop Bundle that includes all of the resources currently in my store that are used in this curriculum. It is a one stop shop for your math curriculum in second grade!

These plans do not include some of the materials needed. This is because some of the materials needed are already available separately in my store. You can find a list and links in the preview download. Any materials listed in the lesson plans that are not available in another resource in my store ARE included with these plans.

These suggested resources are not required to do this curriculum. You can write your own story problems, draw your own math talks based on the numbers or equations I give you, and use your own game handouts or materials (most game materials are included in this packet). Links to the materials are in the preview and listed below if you prefer to have them ready-made!

Formal assessments are not included in this plans resource. The link to my quarterly math assessments is below.

Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.
Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.
Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
