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 thoughtprovoking questions) 

*(Give overview of content, strategy or skill; Review) 


Further Practice: Center Work and Homework
