Guided Math Ch.1 Review and Reflect

My thoughts on chapter 1 using the Review and Reflect questions at the end of the chapter! Please feel free to comment on your own reflections! 

This is how I organize and label my math manipulatives and math stuff in case you needed a visual. I'm all about the visuals!

I am loving this book! Oh so good! I also want to read all of Debbie Diller's Math Stations book and merge the information of the two!

Thanks for sharing the picture of how you organize your math manipulatives. I hope to get this done before school starts.

I love how you organized your math manipulatives!! If only I could get that organized...We use enVision at our school too & I love the animated lesson. It really does grab the students. I'm following along with this book study and can't wait to hear more! :)

Awesome. I finished the book a couple of weeks ago, there is a whole section (I can't remember what chapter) about how important it is for a classroom to be organized. Looks like you've already got that down pat! Thanks for sharing! :)

OMG!I LOVE the way you've organized your math materials! It looks so friendly!
I think one of the keys to help kids build conceptual knowledge it math talk. Unfortunately, I think it also gets pushed to the side because of time.
Thanks for linking up! I can't wait to read what Sammons has for us in the upcoming chapters!

I'm following you now. My school district also uses Envision. I, too, hope to try Envision pre-tests and incorporate more literature into math. I'm moving down to 2nd grade, so calendar time is a bit new to me. What does yours include?

Linda said...

Wow! Love your organization!!! I too am loving the book....I feel like math is so often neglected on the "how" to teach ideas.....this book is really helping me!!

I love how you posted your reflections! I am moving into second grade this coming year so your organization of materials has me wishing I could get into my new classroom! I am now following you! Thanks!

I'm loving this book, too. Off to read the next chapter :)

Thank you ladies! Organizing my math materials was one of the best classroom things I have done! It had a marked difference during my math instruction time.

@Molly ~ I purchased Cara Carroll's Calendar Companions. Check it out here:

I just used the calendar sheet last year. This year I plan on elaborating it a bit more. I will be posting about it in the near future.

I love both of the math books you've mentioned! I read Diller's book last summer and took a lot of her thoughts and merged it in a math workshop format! I'm so excited to see other people who are trying out guided math and sharing their ideas! :) It truly is an amazing thing to watch unfold in your classroom. I felt like the students really did have a deeper understanding of math this year! :)

Great Organization of your Math Center. I did read math stations last fall but I struggled with implementing it during mid school year. I am looking forward to a new year and trying again.

I have my book order and am excited to join in on this study. This will be my first book study as I am new to the blogging world.
