How do I get started with math workshop?
It is very common for teachers to have a reading workshop and a writing workshop. We structure our classrooms in this way because we know that the format has many benefits.
Benefits of a Workshop Model
- Allows you to meet students where they are – workshop can be a great way to meet the needs of your students
- Gives you time to meet with students in small groups or one-one-one
- Students often work in small groups and develop cooperation skills
- Children are engaged in math practice during the entire period
Flexibility is Key!
Of course, as teachers, we know that flexibility in the classroom and in your planning is key. While we see many benefits of a workshop model in math, there are days that a mini-lesson will not cover a new math topic. Or, there might be a day where all students are struggling with a skill. You could skip your rotations and work together on white boards to develop mastery.
