Thanks! Since my last post, I have been giving Guided Math a try for some of my math classes. We do a computer center to practice math facts and problem solving, an independent center to work on problem solving and computation skills at seats, small group time with me, and partner work around the room to practice facts and skills. It took some organizational and management time to get the four groups of students knowing where they were rotating to and to do that quietly, but it is coming along now, and they seem to really like it. I have an hour for math each day so each rotation is 15 minutes.
I like it because I am able to differentiate for the leveled groups and give the higher kids a challenge. It could be frustrating during whole group because those kids sort of get pushed to the side when I have to always be with the lower students during independent work.
I will post more thoughts later in the year how it is going.
