Guided Math July 18, 2012 “Do things better than they have ever been done before.”
Goals of this workshop Understanding Guided Math Framework Getting your campus team excited about improving student performance in MATH Getting Started with Guided Math

Data Implications: The WHY As a table group answer the following questions. Chart your responses using Concrete, Pictorial and/or Abstract representations. 1. What is the difference between TAKS testing and STAAR testing? 2. What was different from being a TAKS teacher to a STAAR teacher? 3. What data supports your responses?
So what is Guided Math?
BETTER Math Instruction Definition in your own words? What it is not? What does a student experience? What does a teacher experience?
7 Instructional Components of a Guided Math Framework A classroom environment of Numeracy Morning Math Warm- Ups & Calendar Board Activities Whole Class Instruction Guided Math Instruction with Small Groups Math Workshop Individual Conference Ongoing Assessment
-Manipulatives -Tools for Measuring -Problems of the Day Problems of the Week -Class made charts -Word Wall -Vocabulary Displays -Math Related Literature -Math Journals -Graphic Organizers -Math Connections (other content areas) Classroom Environment of Numeracy Guided Math-Laney Sammons
Problem of the Day Use base-ten blocks to solve the problem. Jesse has 76 toy soldiers. Diego gave him 15 more. How many toy soldiers does Jesse have now? a) What do you need to find out? b) What operation did you use and why? c) Write a number sentence to show how you solved the problem. Label your answer. Morning Math Warm-Ups/Calendar Board Activities 10-20 minutes
Your Age By Chocolate Math 1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would LIKE to have chocolate (more than once and less than ten). 2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold). 3. Add 5. 4. Multiply it by 50. 5. If you have already had your birthday this year, add 1762. If you have not already had your birthday this year, add 1761. 6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born. You should have a three digit number. The first digit is your original number (how many times you want to eat chocolate each week). The next two numbers are: YOUR AGE! Morning Math Warm-Ups/Calendar Board Activities 10-20 minutes
Whole Class Instruction 20-30 minutes Today’s Goal: 3 rd Grade Unit 1-Place Value Collaborate with your table group to study the IFD and create a lesson following the Guided Math Framework

Math Workstations Math Work StationTask Station #1Effective Math/Reading Instruction Comparison Station #2Problem Solving: Create a poster that will advertise what your campus is going to do to improve math instruction. Station #3Vocabulary: Complete a vocabulary scavenger hunt using Math Work Stations Station #4Skills Practice: Fluency Game Station #5Intervention: Glass Half Full Guided Math Instruction/Math Workshops/Individual Conferences

Station #1 Most Effective Math/Reading Instruction Comparison Create a Venn Diagram and compare and contrast the most effective Math AND Reading instruction that is occurring on your campus. Please work in pairs and use the supplies provided
Station #2 Problem Solving: Create a Poster Think of the following questions in order to create a poster that will advertise how your campus will improve Math Instruction this upcoming school year. 1. What resources do you already have available on your campus? 2. What qualities should be a non-negotiable in a Guided Math Model classroom? 3. What should a successful student experience during a quality, rigorous Tier 1 Math lesson?
Station #3 Vocabulary: Complete a vocabulary scavenger hunt using Math Work Stations Use Debbie Diller’s Math Work Stations to complete the following chart in your ISN, under the Guided Math training tab. Please work in teams of 3-4, everyone should complete this chart in their own ISN. TermDefinition (in your own words) Pictorial Representation List one way this impacts Guided Math Math Work Stations Routines Scheduling Numeracy
Station#4 Skills Practice: Fluency and Number Skills Please work in pairs, and choose one of the following to complete: Factor Race Math Game Or Daily Number Study (choose any number from 50-100)
Station #5 Interventions At this station we will discuss possible measurable math interventions that can be used to address the needs of our At-Risk students. This will be a “teacher” led station
Ongoing Assessment Are students ready to move on? How well did students master the curriculum? Does anything need to be retaught before instruction proceeds? How did the class as a whole perform? Guided Math by Laney Sammons
Mix-Freeze-Group What information did you take away from the work stations activities?
First 25 Days: Where to Start? Set up your routines Set up a classroom of numeracy Establish your groups (based on data) Create a 90 minute schedule Setting Up TEKS based workstations
Classroom Spaces and Places Classroom Movement (transitions) Manipulative Usage Expectations for Cooperative Learning (Kagan Structures & Marcia Tate Strategies ) Calm Signals and Check in Discussion Set up your routines Set up your routines
Set Up a Classroom of Numeracy Whole Group Area Small Group Instruction (Teacher Station) Math Workstations Area Organization & Storage of Manipulatives Problem of the Day (Daily) Math Word Walls Calendar Board Student/Class Created Charts
Set up your groups Set up your groups CUM Folder Study 2012 STAAR Raw Data Pre-assess (BOY) Groups can/should change regularly Data based (CSCOPE Unit Assessments, Informal, Formal)

Ideas for Workstations Technology: IWB, computer, Ipads, Nooks, Laptops Standards-Based Games: card games, TCM. Problem Solving: CSCOPE Problem- Solving Math Journals Thinking Maps Fluency Building Activities: timed tests, flash cards, etc. Guided Manipulative Exploration: geoboards, measurement, etc. Math and Literature
Benefits of Small Group Interventions “Effective Mathematics teaching requires understanding what students know and need to learn and the challenging and supporting them to learn it well”- NCTM,2000
Targeted Small Group Instruction Math Intervention Video Research Student Understanding Decide What Is Needed Teach To Student Needs Link to the Future
Closing Activity Feeder Pattern Collaboration Discuss the roll-out plan for your campus Doing things better than they have ever been done before!
