Launching guided math is no easy feat! It can be extremely overwhelming and difficult to keep track of everything for guided math, so I’m here to help you get started with a few free guided math resources!
Free Guided Math Lesson Plans
Not sure how to even introduce guided math to your students? I’ve laid out step-by-step plans for your first week and the first month of guided math. I’ve included mini-lesson ideas for the first 5 days of guided math, and what to focus your lessons on for your second, third, and fourth weeks, too!
You can read in greater depth about launching guided math in this three-part series!
Mathematicians Do/Do Not Sorting Activity
In order to run guided math successfully, it is essential that you spend time teaching explicit expectations for what students should or should not be doing during guided math! That’s why I created this sorting activity!
Use the colorful pieces to create an anchor chart during one of your mini-lessons. I’ve also included a simple cut-and-glue sorting activity for students to complete independently to reinforce the mini-lesson.
Planning & Organizational Templates
There’s a lot to keep track of for guided math. That’s why I’ve included templates to help you organize your math centers, lesson plans, small groups, data, and more!
Use the one-page monthly planning sheet to ensure you have all of your math centers planned and prepped for the entire month. Then, organize your weekly lesson plans with the simple weekly lesson plan template.
These planning templates will help you organize small groups, unit planning, and weekly planning. The unit planning page is especially helpful for long-range planning!
