Simple, teacher-friendly, and practical!!!
Thanks!!

I need some ideas for kindergarten guided math. Do you have any math center ideas for this grade as well??

Hi Adriana,
For some instant, rigorous, child centered centers see jmeacham.com specifically http://www.jmeacham.com/math/math.tubs.htm. I like all of them but especially the patterns and geometry ones. Also see Math Their Way newsletters. I would start with Chapters 5, 6 and 9 http://www.center.edu/NEWSLETTER/newsletter.shtml. Kelly’s Kindergarten also has some great stuff http://www.kellyskindergarten.com/math/math_activities.htm. And finally, I love sparklebox.com…see http://www.sparklebox.co.uk/md/index.html.

In terms of guided math lessons, I would use some of these activities with the small group. See the guided math framework (do a search for framework within the site). I would use that framework and do some of these activities in small groups.
