## Five Steps to Implementing Guided Math, Learning Stations, Reflection, and More

**Math Workshop**** is an essential resource for any teacher, school, or district looking to shift or enhance how math is taught.** It includes lesson plan examples and templates that will help you visualize and implement a math workshop model in any classroom.

Math workshop supports student engagement and growth in the math classroom. It is structured around accessible mathematical tasks, open-ended problem solving, small-group instruction, student choice, and time for practicing important concepts throughout the year.

#### Full Description

*Math Workshop: Five Steps to Implementing Guided Math, Learning Stations, Reflection, and More* is an essential resource for any teacher, school, or district looking to shift or enhance how math is taught. It includes lesson plan examples and templates that will help you visualize and implement a math workshop model in any classroom.

Successfully implement the transformational math workshop model of instruction through five accessible, manageable steps:

- Step 1:
**Understand Math Workshop** - Step 2:
**Prepare Your Students for Math Workshop** - Step 3:
**Decide Your Math Workshop Structure** - Step 4:
**Facilitate Your Math Workshop** - Step 5:
**Reflect on and Refine Your Math Workshop**

Educators are invited to embrace *Math Workshop* as their own personal “instructional coach,” first exploring what Jennifer Lempp refers to as “three buckets” that need to be in place for a highly successful math workshop:

- Classroom Arrangement
- Routines and Procedures
- Mathematics Community

**Guidance for Getting Started with Math Workshop**

The resource then offers “Twenty Days to a Classroom Culture That Works,” which includes 20 minilessons that support the communication and practice of expectations surrounding the workshop model. From there, it explores three classroom-tested math workshop structures, providing practical ideas for routines, focus lessons, guided math groups, learning stations, and reflections so you can get started with math workshop in your classroom today.

**Streaming Video and Reproducibles Included**

The streaming video clips invite you inside K–5 classrooms for a seeing-is-believing look at math workshop in action. Seeing clips of actual teachers and students engaged in math workshop is the next best thing to observing the model in a classroom.

Templates, tools, and ideas are included and also available for download.
