**5th Grade Math Exploration**

This year in Math we will be learning math with a Guided Math approach.

What is Guided Math?

"Guided Math is a structure for teaching whereby a teacher supports each child’s development of mathematical proficiency at increasing levels of difficulty, within the context of a small group." * We will be practicing our mathematical thinking skills in whole group instruction, small group instruction and the use of rotating math centers. This allows for great

**differentiation of instruction**so I can

*reach and teach*every student by getting to work with them at whatever level they are at and raise them to the next level of learning. Some students may need extra support learning a particular concept but then in another unit of study- the same student may need some extension activities to further their learning.

Math Centers

Our math centers days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. During

our Math Center Days we start our class with a mini-lesson

on the math concept we are practicing that day. Students

rotate through 5 centers- 2 are teacher led and 3 are more

independent practice. It usually takes us both Tuesday and

Thursday to have every group complete all 5 centers for the

week. The students love the hands-on centers and are highly engaged.
