## Guided Math Videos: Part 2

Here is a very interesting guided math video. Look at the student desks and the guided math group table! Wow! These are really great! I haven’t seen these before.

Also, notice the variety of ways this teacher uses technology. You don’t have to use the programs he names, there are plenty of free programs. The idea of using technology for math workshop in all of these different ways is fascinating and shows how engaged and targeted digital workstation practice can be.

Happy Mathing,

## Math Workshop Routines-Counting Around the Room: Part I

To begin math workshop you might do a series of energizers and daily routines that build skills throughout the school year. One of my favorite daily routines is Counting Around the Room. Counting around the room can be really fun and works in all grade levels. The count differs according to the grade level. In the primary grades you are counting by 1’s, 2’s 5’s and 10’s. In the upper elementary grades you are counting by multiples, fractions, decimals and percents.

Remember that the FOCUS is on the relationships of the numbers!

So for example, count around the room by 5’s and then by 10’s. Ask the students to talk about what they noticed. Have the students count by 2’s and then ask them where they think they will land if they count by 4’s given the relationship between those two numbers. Have the students count by 1’s and then ask them where they think they will land if they count by halves.

Here are a few questions to consider about this routine:

1. What are your scaffolds, so everyone has a way into the activity and can experience success?

2. Is your numberline out, visible and accessible?

3. Does everyone have their own numberline?

4. Is your numbergrid out, visible and accessible?

5. What other models and tools might the students use to access the count?

More tomorrow on counting around the room!
