I second Math Workshop!

First - I agree with your principal. I was in a building that did flexible grouping for math for a few years and I LOVED it. Then we were given the same reasoning you were given, and had to stop the grouping. Once again, when I had my own class back and math was no longer stuck in the limited 50 minute slot, I could take as much time as we needed, I realized that I loved that too! I can see the benefit of both, but I realized that the math workshop style as set up in the link above is truly the best of both worlds.

The nice thing I found is that Beth Newingham has it set up so well USING Everyday math, so for me, it was just plugging in the 4th grade curriculum to her structure!
