Guided Math

I dabbled with this whole idea of Guided Math last year and love the bits of it I did. I'm planning to go full force with it next year and this is the book I'm reading to get a better handle on all of it.
Has anyone out there read this? I'm going to pick up the Diller Math Stations Book too. We only have an hour scheduled for math next year and it is at the end of the day right after recess. Yikes! I must not run over on recess time and will be fighting the afternoon slump myself!

Last year I started organizing my math games/stations by math strands. I used this drawer set from Target. They were actually only three to each so I took them apart to stack by four. I might go back and stack one more shelf per unit since my floor space is limited.

Would love to hear from other third grade teachers running guided math next year!


  1. I'm excited to see your post! I bought the book last year and LOVED it. I dabbled last year with it, but am determined to go full force this year too when I teach 3rd. There's a guided math yahoo group that I've been following too!

  2. I've been doing math workshop for a while now, and this year I'm going to add work stations 2 days a week. I've been working on it all summer, so I hope it goes well. The Math Work Stations book was wonderful!
