Happy Hump Day Teachers!
I am excited to share my progress with Math Work Stations!
Here is our new Rotation Board-
I found the blue pocket chart in the closet and didn't want it to go to waste!
I reduced the size of my Work Stations cards by 55% on the color copier here at school. I needed the smaller size to fit in the sleeves on the pocket chart.
With our afternoon schedule being so short,
first quarter is going to have just one, 15 minute rotation
daily. On test days, we will have 2 rotations.
Beginning next quarter,
I hope to build stamina and add a second round daily.
Our current Math Block is one hour long:
10 minutes- Interactive Calendar Notebooks
35 minutes- focus lesson/practice activity (Math Daily 3-ish)
15 minutes-Math Work Stations
There are 16 tubs total.
#'s 14-16 are themed and seasonal math materials.
Here is a peek inside the first 13 tubs.
I recorded these quarterly materials
on my snazzy clipboard...
Students will turn in completed paper-pencil activities into the blue basket on this top shelf.
The other math games are for FUN FRIDAY rotation!
In my lesson plans for this week, we are introducing the final 5 tubs before starting the first round on Friday!
The kids are so excited!
And speaking of lesson plans,
I linked up, fashionably late with Deedee Wills for her

As many of you know,
I cut and paste my weekly plans into my E.C. planner.
Have I told you lately how much I LOVE this planner!
Happy Wednesday and I will see you back here for our Five for Friday celebration!
