In my math classroom, I teach third grade Common Core Math Standards. Students have a guided lesson on the standard we are working on. They then participate in a "Math By Myself" activity/sheet supporting the guided math lesson/sheet/ problem(s). After this is completed they are able to choose between "Math with a Partner" to work on activities/ games/etc or "Math on the Chromebook" where they can do math work on certain websites, primarily TenMarks. I believe that students need direct instruction a set amount of time each day, provided through whole group lessons, but also need time to have a choice and take responsibility for their own learning. This structure allows me to meet and work with students at each one's appropriate level as they complete their independent and partner work.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. You can call the school at 668-7646 between 7:40-3:30. You may also send a note in your child's red folder or email me at email@example.com.
