    Do any of you do math stations? I'd like to do a whole group lesson then break up the class into stations. I can work with lower-level kids on the concepts, challenge to above-level kids while everyone else does the station. Do you know any resources (books, websites) where I can find some things?

    Thanks!

    I would love to hear more ideas on this as well! I am trying to plan a more workshop approach to math myself. Ideas on this would be appreciated!!:anyone:

    Here are some websites that provide free resources for a workshop approach to math. The first 3 sites are by teachers using math workshop or math tubs. The last 3 are sources for games and activities to use for tubs or stations. Hope you find something useful from at least one site:) K

    Center 3- Exploration Activity
    Center 4- Written Assignment I use that DPI website mentioned above for my centers it is GREAT!!
    They do 2 centers twice a week and so they get to all centers during the week.

    I'm did this last year, and used most of my math-block for it (I had multi-age and really needed more small group time than whole group) This year, I'm using more whole group, but still using small-group for one 15-20 minute rotation each day-

    1. Meet with teacher (for instruction or I might use this time to introduce a math game that they'll play on their own in the future)
    2. Computer- we have 2 math programs that we use on the computer- I will assign which section to complete. I also have links on my school intranet page to age-appropriate math games. Sometimes I assign them to do a certain game, sometimes they can choose.
    3. Practice Page- usually from the math workbook, possibly something I have copied.
    4. Math Game- I use a lot of the games I remember from when I taught in a district using Everyday Math. I also set up other games that I found here & there on the internet.

    Thanks for the great websites! I had envisioned doing something like math tubs but had no idea how to start. This is great!

    I was really impressed with your site and math station suggestions. I also have to say that Quia looks like a great tool to use in the classroom. Do you like it? Any problems? Should I look into it? :thanks:

    Thanks for the compliment. :D My kids LOVE Quia - I also love it because it's an easy way for me to incorporate the curriculum with technology.
