Math Work Stations: Independent Learning You Can Count On, K-2
Diller, Debbie
Stenhouse Publishers
If you've ever questioned how to make math stations work, you'll find this photo-filled, idea-packed resource invaluable. This book extends Debbie Diller's best-selling work on literacy work stations and classroom design to the field of mathematics. In "Math Work Stations" you'll find ideas to help children develop conceptual understanding and skills, use math vocabulary as they talk about their mathematical thinking, and connect big ideas to meaningful independent exploration and practice. This book details how to set up, manage, and keep math stations going throughout the year. There's even a chapter devoted solely to organizing and using math manipulatives. Each chapter includes: (1) key concepts based on NCTM and state math standards; (2) math vocabulary resources and literature links; (3) suggested materials to include at each station for the corresponding math content strand; (4) ideas for modeling, troubleshooting, differentiating, and assessment; and (5) reflection questions for professional development. Throughout the book, Debbie has included hundreds of color photos showing math work stations in action from a variety of classrooms in which she has worked. Charts, reproducible forms, and math work stations icons are included to provide everything you'll need to get started with stations in your classroom right away.
