Lesson Plans

Guided Math Lesson Plan Freebie
Alright,I a m attempting to upload my first freebie! Since our county switched to the Common Core Standards this year, I had to totally revamp the way I plan. After MANY trials and scrapped ideas, this is the lesson plan format I created and use for guided math. You can find out more about guided math by going here and reading Debbie Diller's fantastic book, Math Workstations. While you're at it, check out her other lifesavers, Spaces & Places, and Making the Most of Small Groups.  She has many others, but I recommend these for first grade teachers, especially!  Be aware that you will probably need to download two fonts to make this plan look just like mine: smileymonster and annoying kettle, both of which can be grabbed over at Kevin & Amanda's.
 Tell me what you think and how you use it!

  1. Great job on this freebie! It will be very helpful when planning for math! Thanks so much for being such an inspiration to teaching! :)


  2. I love this template. I'm going to use it to help me develop the one I will use next year when I only teach math.

    Thanks for sharing (and thanks for following my blog...that's how I found you).
