Over the past few weeks, I have been taming our reading block to make sure I have time for guided math everyday. I typically meet with my lowest friends, and it is such valuable time together. Right now, we are in full-court-press mode with word problems. Moving more toward a “Number Talks” type of class, real-world math consumes more of our time together.
My friends need lots of word-problem practice, more than is provided by our math curriculum. So, I have started creating monthly, differentiated word-problem mini-books. Right now, we are working our way through Subtraction within 10 (with my sweet and lows) in turkey style. You can grab this free mini-book here!
While you’re there, also check out my December Mini-Books. This set includes 3 mini-books for subtraction within 10, 15, and 25. This is a perfect resource for differentiating your math small groups or math centers!
Well friends, I’m headed to bed. It’s 8:25 on a Monday, so you can definitely understand the need for sleep. 🙂
