This will be our second year using envision math. This year I want to teach having a whole group/small group/center math program. How can I set this up and what would be the best way to go about setting this up for an hour time frame. What would be good for centers and how long should students stay in a center and with me. How long should whole group be? Thanks for any suggestions you may have.

Good question. I'm interested in what other people have done with envision. I have only used it one year.

I am also interested in the responses. I used Envisions last year in 5th grade and this year with Common Core being used, I need to have math groups established. Thanks for any help and suggestions of what works.

I had about an hour and a half but here is what I did:
Daily Spiral review-go over review together after they have worked on it
Interactive Lesson Piece
Vocab/Video
Guided Practice Together

I would then rotate three groups through
1)Independent work- they bring their work to the table to check it when they are with me
2)Table with me- we would hit skills taught-differentiated for the groups
3) center games/facts practice

Each center was about 10-15 min

Just curious what grade you teach and a few other questions. How long did you spend on the review, video, main lesson, and guided practice? ALSO when did you start your group rotation? Did you wait until some people finished indep. practice or before?

I had 60-75 minutes to spend on Math per day. I didn't do a whole group lesson at all. The first day of the unit was a pretest on the unit skills. I then graded them and put the kids into groups of 4-5 based on their pretest scores.
The daily lesson consisted of 4 stations each about 15 mins:
*computer station where the students do the visual learning independently, the lesson quiz, and early finishers play games that reinforce the skills of the unit or review skills;
*a game station with the daily lesson game;
*independent practice station where they work through the problems in the book
*instruction station where I deliver the lesson for the day, this could be the problem solving piece of the lesson, clearing up confusion from independent practice, and guided practice problems so I can check to see if they understand

I use the leveled homework and students pick up their worksheets based on their quiz score. They know I can check their score and are usually honest. I guess if you wanted to you could spend 15 mins on the whole group and eliminate one of the stations. Maybe make the game station once a week instead of daily. Good luck!
