Math Workshop #BringitON!

This week we kicked off Math Workshop…it is a work in progress getting all of my little friends into the routines/procedures of the workshop model.  But we went for it!  We begin math everyday on the rug for a mini-lesson, then we break into four groups that rotate around different stations, and come back to the rug for a short closing.  I am a HUGE fan of math workshop because I am able to pull guided groups.  In these guided groups, I am meeting with my students in a small group which allows me to meet their needs!  I feel like I am able to reach my students better and have seen better overall success with this model! 

Sooo… what is everyone else doing when I am pulling groups?  They are working in stations around the classroom.  On my chart^^ (up there) you can see the different rotations.  I am sorry that my chart isn't the cutest thing you have ever seen!  But, the clip art is … thanks Kate Hadfield Designs!

SO we kicked off our workshop with some fun learning!!!  Check it out ...

The best part of math workshop is that my students are cheering for math time and truly loving it!  :)  Tomorrow is Friday!  YAY!
