Guided Math Chapter Four!


Photobucket


Welcome to Guided Math Chapter Four: Using Guided Math with the Whole Class.  Believe it or not, this is my very first time to host a linky party.  I am very nervous and hope I have lots of guests! I created a quick summary of Lanny Sammons' ideas from chapter four.  I agree that there is a time and place for whole group instruction.  I also think that whole group should never been the only type of instruction for any subject. Kids need that small group time with the teacher to correct misconceptions, build trust, and learn with guidance.  Kids also need to work with their peers to learn communication skills and explore math concepts.  I loved the sample mini lesson in this chapter and the different ideas for mini lessons too!
I am co-hosting this chapter with Sweet Seconds.  She has made some super super cute items to use with Guided Math and is offering them for FREE!! You must go get them ASAP. That cute!

  2. I really enjoyed Chapter 4, especially the validation about using whole group instruction for parts of the lesson. It just makes sense.
