I taught Kindergarten for the last five years and now this is my first year teaching 5th grade Math. I am really struggling with my daily Math routine. When I planned this summer, I thought that I'd do a 10 minute warmup, followed by a 20 minute lesson, followed by independent practice so that I could work with small groups. Well...it doesn't seem to be working that way. I feel like my best days are with dry erase boards so that we all stay in the same place at the same time, but then I'm not getting small groups in. I feel that when I give independent work, they don't finish it, and they don't all seem to complete it for homework. Any input is appreciated!
