Daily Math Thinking Routines in Action

Posted on September 20, 2018. Filed under: Uncategorized |

It’s out! The new book that puts thinking routines at your fingertips!

Routines must be student-centered and student-friendly (Sanchez, 2010).

 The Impact of Routines

Routines and ways of being and approaching knowledge and learning in a classroom impact student ideas about teaching and learning, their attitudes toward learning and knowledge and their engagement in the teaching and learning process (Dahl, Bals, & Turi, 2005; Ritchhart, 2010)

“There is no decision that teachers make that has a greater impact on students’ opportunities to learn and on their perceptions about what mathematics is, than the selection or creation of the tasks with which the teacher engages students in studying mathematics (Lappan & Briars, 1995, p. 139).”

Math Workshop Models

Posted on September 5, 2018. Filed under: Uncategorized |

As many of you begin the new year and are thinking about the set-up of math workshop, here is a great page that has excellent examples of  mini-lessons.

Remember that a mini-lesson is supposed to be just that – Mini! (7 to 12 minutes). There is wiggle room here depending on what you are doing.  But, way too often we fall into doing Maxi lessons that last 20 to 45 minutes!   So keep it short, to the point and engaging!

Happy Mathing,
