# Sample Guided Math

With the overwhelming interest in Guided Math as a structure for running the math block, it is equally important to choose a resource or curriculum that aligns with the math workstation framework. Ready-to-teach math warm-ups, mini-lessons, differentiated small groups, and hands-on workstations make running this structure highly effective. Below we will outline how the Guided Math Resources for Kinder-5th grade can empower both students and teachers to levels together. You can sample Guided Math for your school! Simply email [email protected]

## WHY GUIDED MATH?

The guided math structure allows us a front-row seat to the learning. We gain access to the most powerful way to impact instruction: the student’s math mind. Guided Math allows us to adapt classroom procedures, structures of learning, and delivery of content to best fit the needs of the students with whom we share the space. Every student should feel like the expert mathematician in the room with access to all of the tools, manipulatives, and experiences that create joy and excitement for solving math problems. Over the last few years our team of teachers, administrators, and instructional specialists, has worked to create a comprehensive scope of resources to do just that very thing.

## HOW DO I BEGIN?

Guided Math doesn’t just mean reorganizing your math block; it also gives you an opportunity to approach math instruction with a renewed sense of perspective and purpose. It’s one thing to have the mindset and philosophy of a math workstation approach, but carrying it out is where the impact occurs. This is where Guided Math resources make all the difference. Teachers and students are equipped with the content and delivery needed to produce their best math block ever. In the Guided Math Resources, all four components of the guided math structure are standards-aligned, and in a ready-to-teach format.

## SAMPLE GUIDED MATH

More than ever before, students need individualized math instruction. Varied levels of learners and gaps in learning all contribute to the expanse in instructional needs of today’s math classroom. Not only can Guided Math help bridge the gap for students, but it can also ease teachers into systematically working with small groups of students as a norm in how the math block works. We offer the support of professional development for Guided Math K-5 as well as the complete family of resources to carry out every component.
