My personal goal for myself this year is improving my math instruction. It’s slightly painful for my because to be completely honest – I hate math. We have been doing small group individualized math groups that have been going really well! Students rotate between working with me, working with a paraprofessional, and independent math work (woohoo – Interactive Math Binders all the way!). During my time, I have been focusing on specific math skill sets. My lowest group is on addition 1-5, my mid group is on double digit addition/subtraction with and without regrouping, and my high group is on multiplication 1-5. So it’s a many curriculum party in my room! As always! Here is how it runs:
I write a set of math problems on the big dry erase board.
Students complete the math problems on their small dry erase boards.
While they get started on their work, I calculate the answers on a calculator.
I check students’ work and score their responses on the dry erase board.
I record their data in the data sheet.
For my touch point kiddos, this quick reference guide is a lifesaver!
