TEACHING EXPERIENCE

One-Room Math began with one teacher and a classroom of first- and second-graders. In 2001, Melanie Kobelinsky found herself charged with teaching math to a multi-age group of six, seven, and eight year-olds who were all at different points in their mathematical development. It had sounded simple, but Melanie quickly felt overwhelmed at the idea of teaching two separate math curriculums within one math period. She was already teaching reading and writing with small group and individualized workshop instruction and she wondered what it might look like if she approached math in the same way. Re-organizing her teacher guides was step number one. By matching up standards from the first-grade program and standards from the second-grade program, Melanie was able to simplify things. With all students working on the same strand at the same time, Melanie was able to more easily plan one lesson for both grade levels. Like any other group of students, though, Melanie’s first- and second-graders represented a range of skills and abilities. A second step was adding in related standards from the grades above and below. Now one lesson could address the preliminary standards that struggling students still needed to master and also extend the learning of those who were ready for additional challenge. Today’s One-Room Math program is organized around the Common Core Mathematics Standards for grades K through 6. The mathematical concepts in the Common Core are aligned here so that any given lesson can be used with students working at any level K-6. For example, in a lesson on area, Kindergarten level students might count how many square tiles can cover a shape, third grade level students might relate multiplication to finding how many square tiles can cover a rectangle, and sixth graders might calculate the area of a more complex polygon.

MY TEACHING STYLE

A program that is designed to be multi-leveled sounds complicated, but from the very beginning, One-Room Math has committed to keeping things simple. The teacher guide is written in simple language with consistent formatting so that a busy teacher can easily make sense of the day’s task. Student worksheets are clear and simple– without a lot of text to read or clipart to distract. Hands-on materials are those that are already common in classrooms.
