**Debbie Diller Says**

"But remember that great stations are preceded by strong whole-group teaching (and then materials are moved to a math station for practice and reinforcement)."

That's why I looked at Chapters 3 and 4 from the book, "Math Stations" and the Teachers Lesson Guides from Grade 1 and 2 from Everyday Math before coming up with my plan for what my Math Station tubs would contain.

Dear Deborah,

ReplyDeleteI love how you aligned this book to your program and the structure you created. I hope you share this with other teachers in your district who are not capable of this. You have a clear and well designed plan.

Thank you for linking up with me and sharing this.

Dear Fran,

ReplyDeleteThank you. My blog is so full of charts, and not full of activities. IT's my mathematical thinking that has to organize where I am going step by step. Everyday Math creates so much teacher stress to complete the book because of spiraling concept development. I WANT THEM TO FEEL FREE because it all works together. Be sure to send Everyday Math questions to me... I'll be happy to help

I also teach with Everyday Math 1st grade this is wonderful! Thanks for sharing.
