**Math**

**What does Math look like in our classroom?**

We follow a similar model to our reading workshop. Each day Math starts with a mini lesson. During this short lesson a Math strategy or concept is modeled. Students are able to participate in the lesson through critical thinking questions and hands-on activities. Charts are often created to remind students of the strategies or concepts that were discussed that day.

After the mini lesson, we begin our Math group rotations. Students are split into three Math groups. This enables us to meet with each group and provide explicit instruction in a concept that they either need enrichment or extra support for.

Students also have a chance to practice their math skills through a daily hands-on activity and a daily fact practice. Students practice their addition and subtraction facts. This includes a variety of web-based resources like XtraMath and games that involve using flashcards. Students practice their math facts for at least 15 minutes per day.
