I was wrong! Almost as soon as I started I became overwhelmed – I LOVE the idea of doing guided math. But I can’t wrap my head around all of it…and I’m not good at implementing something until I have a very good understanding of what its about…
But next week there is a Debbie Diller conference that I get to attend! I know you are all very jealous of me right now! And I don’t want to brag, but I am lucky to be a bilingual teacher in my district. We do have to deal with teaching in 2 languages (which is mostly great), but we get so much professional development!
I get to go with my “new” teammate from next year too! We need all the help we can get when it comes to developing classroom routines and instructional practices that inherently meet kids at their level – bilingual 1/2 next year!!!
So a couple of questions. Have you read this book? What do you think? Have you had any successes implementing its structures into your classroom? Any advice? Things to be on the look out for? Questions I should make sure to ask next week?
I’ll be sure to share what I learn next week with you all. I’m sure this summer I’ll be creating math stations like a loca!
There was a linky book study over the summer and you can find the first one here:
- I’m going to check this out before next week!
P.S. - I just found out I get to go to another conference over the summer by Linda Hoyt - so lucky, I know! AND, I have been tagged by a couple of bloggers and will answer their questions soon! Pin It
