If you have been reading my blog thous summer, you know that I have been participating in the Primary Gal's Guided Math book study. I'm learn ing so much! The book inspired me to get my guided math more organized!
When it comes to organizing, I am a HUGE fan of binders. (I have been known to stand in front of a shelf of binder at Wal-Mart and just drool.) I got to work making cute covers and useful printables to keep in my newest binder.
Ready to take a tour of my Guided Math Binder?
All you need is a binder, a set of five dividers and several page protectors.
I am OCD and I LOVE to plan ahead! I need to know that everything will fit.
After reading chapter four of the Guided Math book, I knew I needed a way to plan my mini-lessons so that I was certain to have each component.
There are several variations of the small-group lesson planners. I only meet with two small groups per day, so I choose a 2 per page layout. The file is editable so you can type in the lessons if you prefer. I like the sticky notes. I can use the same planning page over and over!
Students will be moving from one small group to another so the sticky notes are a bonus on this page as well!
These group dividers are editable (like most the product!) so you can add in your own group names.
I promised myself that I would be better able keeping a running record for each student. I may write their info on avery labels and just stick them non this sheet after groups are over. Might save some time!
There are also printables for organizing your centers. I somehow managed to forget to take pictures of those!
