Math Workshop Set-Up

Organization is key to a

successful math workshop.

Groups should be flexible.

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.

Problem Solving

Fifth grade students in two different

classrooms are using the problem solving

framework to solve multi-step problems

while providing evidence.

e-Class and Workshop

Fourth and Fifth grade teachers are

effectively using e-Class in math

workshop to differentiate.

Differentiation

This 5th grade teacher uses bins to organize her workshop activities.

Colored paper is used to differentiate tasks.

Student Gallery Walks to Give Math Feedback

Fifth grade students conducted a

Gallery Walk last week to provide

feedback and support to one another.

Spiral Boards

These Spiral

Boards show

continuous use.

Moveable magnetic

Base Ten blocks

allow students to

use manipulatives

while working on

problems.

Spiral Boards

This spiral board has moveable parts

for students to use during workshop.

Students Actively Engaged in Spiral Board Activities

Spiral Boards

This 3rd grade spiral board

can be continuously changed,

and students are working to

use strategies to solve.

Mighty Minds

Anchor charts and

organization lead to Mighty

Minds success!

Anchor Charts w/Vocabulary are Math Word Walls

Anchor Charts should NOT be lists of math vocabulary words.

Anchor Charts w/Vocabulary are Math Word Walls

Wow! What a wonderful wall of anchor

charts about current math standards.

Student Goal Sheets

Students in this

class are tracking

their growth each

day on their

Student Goal

Sheets.

This child is

moving at her

own pace when

learning

strategies for

Mighty Minds.

What a wonderful

tool to use during

conferences!

Y’all Come Sessions

Thanks for staying late for

an afternoon of math!
