Framework for a Guided Math Lesson
Mini- Lesson Present the student activity Share/Debrief 
 A.  Hook the students A. Children try problem, strategy or skill  (often done with a partner initially; done as a game, on a   graphic organizer; manipulatives are often used as part of learning) A. Start Conversation with a Question stressing Focus of Lesson
B.  Explain Focus of Lesson (1 or 2 teaching points)   B. Children engage in guided practice as the teacher constantly checks in with each student for understanding   B. Facilitate discussion about the math practice
C.  Present the concept, strategy or skill for the day C. Teacher takes notes, fills out checklist, asks questions       C. Ask for points of clarification, confusion, comments.  * Make sure to touch base with each student throughout this period. Each child should be doing some independent math work and reflect on this   during the debrief
D.  Model, check for understanding, do with children,   *(Interact with the students while they are doing the math; provide necessary scaffolds and interventions throughout the lesson; ask thought-provoking questions)  
*(Give overview of content, strategy or skill; Review)    
Further Practice: Center Work and Homework

This was very valuable information for me. I’ve picked intro duction to fractions as the mini lesson I ‘ll be doing for my mid-term. It gave me a base to work from. Thanks!
