Math Workshop for third grade simplifies the workshop method with a comprehensive introduction and over 25 step-by-step lessons. This teacher resource for fifth grade math also includes these helpful features:

  • comprehensive lesson plans
  • leveled practice pages
  • hands-on activities for every lesson

The Math Workshop series for kindergarten through fifth grades gives teachers everything they need to implement the math workshop method. Each book contains 28 complete lessons, a thorough introduction, and reproducible game templates. Each lesson begins with an essential question, a warm-up activity, and a whole-group lesson. It is followed by three leveled small-group lessons and a short assessment. Lessons are rounded out with a practice worksheet for each small group and an activity to practice the skill. Teachers are also provided with math talk questions and a math journal prompt to extend learning. The Math Workshop series gives teachers the flexible tools needed to begin small-group math instruction.

Math Workshop

A Framework for Guided Math and Independent Practice

Each 192-page book contains 28 complete lessons, a comprehensive introduction section, and a set of reproducible activity templates. Designed to work with any curriculum, the units include all of the pieces needed for a successful guided math block—just grab the manipulatives and you’re ready to teach

Math Workshop Level Indicators

Level Indicators

Each leveled small-group lesson comes with a targeted practice sheet. The discreet level indicators make sure students get practice at their precise level without the stigma of being in the 'low' group. Circles, squares, and triangles keep teachers organized and students focused on learning.

Math Workshop Critical Thinking Elements

Critical Thinking Elements

Use the Math Talk and Journal Prompt sections to encourage deeper learning and critical thinking. These components of a modern math classroom take each lesson beyond rote learning so students can truly synthesize learning and prove the depth of their knowledge

Math Workshop Activities

Low- and No-Prep Activities

The activity included with each lesson is low- or no-prep so you can spend your time teaching, rather than copying, laminating, and cutting. They are perfect for slipping into dry-erase pockets. Simply copy and place the activity in a center with the listed materials, and your rotations for the week are done.
