Math - Frames and Arrows
Encouraging Independence during Centers
Soon we will also begin Guided Math. This will take place about 2 to 3 times per week and the format will be similar. I'll be meeting with small groups of students (from 3-6 children) for targeted instruction, and the rest of the class will be visiting different math centers. These centers may be games, problem solving, or using technology to work on math skills.
We'll be having conversations at school about being responsible during center time and reviewing center work expectations as we launch Guided Math. This would be a great time to talk to your students about what they are accomplishing during center time.
Currently, when students do not complete all their center work, they are spending some indoor recess time finishing it. However, as we move through the school year, the expectation for independence increases, and students who do not complete center work will bring home a Think About It sheet as a consequence. This provides a way for the student to reflect on his/her choices during centers, and also allows for communication between home and school regarding the issue.
