Math Work Stations - Chapter 1

I received my book a little late and got caught up in closing down my classroom for summer break, however, I have read through chapter 3 and I'm thoroughly enjoying Debbie's book.


I believe I have a few questions to catch up on:






Chapter 1




  1. Materials used by the teacher first, then placed in the station: YES



  2. Materials do not change weekly, but rather changed to reflect the students learning objectives: My concepts and tasks remain consistent... to my math topic. The activities are out for 3 weeks... rotating an old one off and a new one on... I plan to implement Debbie Diller's stations this year.



  3. All students go to stations daily: YES!


  4. Materials are differentiated: A bit... however, I plan to improve this



  5. The teacher observes work or meets with differentiated math groups: YES

I love how organized your closet looks. I grabbed a set of math cards today and couldn't help but ask myself. Do I really use these? Do they serve a purpose? Purging is hard. But I can do it.
