I am in the process of creating math centers for my students to supplement Saxon Math program. This is not something widely done at my school in math, but lower grades do it for reading. I will have enough centers for each child to be working on their own individual activity. In Saxon math, there is a whole-group lesson component, a math facts worksheet, and a guided practice worksheet. My question is, which way do you think would be more effective for the students for me to organize centers: Possibility 1: -Do Whole Group Lesson -Followed by Small Group Guided Practice/ Other kids in Centers Possibility 2: -Small Group Lesson/ Other groups work on Centers -Followed by Whole Group Guided Practice Also-- I am a little hung up on an odd number/even number practice center for 3rd grade level, if anyone has ideas! I can't seem to think of anything using manipulatives for this skill. Any ideas would be great.
