Where Is the Guided Math Area in the Classroom?
There should be a specific area in the classroom where Guided Math Groups are conducted. Students need to be aware of that area and routines surrounding that area, such as coming to the area prepared, gaining access to the teacher during that time, leaving the area. The Guided Math area should be set up with all of the things the teacher needs to conduct the lessons. The student folders, supplies and math manipulatives should all be in a organized and clearly labeled containers in the Guided Math area. This involves much planning ahead of time.
