Math Workshop Set-Up
Students in Workshop
These 5th grade students worked all
week on division strategies at the
concrete level by modeling with Base
Ten Blocks. Then, they were able to find
the connections between multiplication
and division on their own. Students
discovered that they could make
connections between several strategies!
Students in Workshop
Students are engaged in
tasks related to standards.
In picture A, students solved a
problem using many different
strategies.
In picture B, a teacher modified
a Frameworks task to
introduce an open-ended
problem during workshop.
In picture C, students continue
to work on expressions using a
game to practice. By checking
their work, students are held
accountable.
