Debbie Diller has revolutionized literacy instruction in countless classrooms over the years with her seminal books (Literacy Work Stations, Practice with Purpose, and Spaces & Places) on how to effectively use literacy work stations to engage students in critical literacy learning. In Growing Independent Learners, she provides a comprehensive guide--with more than 400 full-color photos--to help you plan instruction focused on literacy standards, organize your classroom for maximum benefit, and lead your students to independence through whole-group lessons, small-group focus, and partner learning at literacy stations. The first four chapters lay the foundation with planning, organizing, and instruction that are essential for success with literacy work stations. From creating a model classroom and developing planning tools to using anchor charts, Debbie gives you creative ideas for making the most of your classroom environment to support student independence. Later chapters focus on standards-based instruction built around key reading, writing, and foundational skills as well as speaking, listening, and language standards. Each of these chapters provides the following: · Detailed explanations of each focal standard's importance and real-world application · Planning tools that include academic vocabulary, plans for whole-group instruction, and suggestions for literacy work stations · Complete whole-group lesson plans that you can use and modify again and again · Connections to help you extend the lessons into other areas of daily instruction, including independent reading time, small-group instruction, and work stations · Mentor texts to use during whole group, small group, or stations · Teaching tips that can help build skills from grade to grade Growing IndependentLearners will help you create a vibrant classroom filled with independent learners. This book will quickly become an essential resource for any teacher who believes, as Debbie does, that all children can learn to work independently in a classroom that's well organized and mindfully planned.

Each page in Common Core Math Workouts for grade 7 contains two ÒworkoutsÓ; one for skills practice and one for applying those skills to solve a problem. These workouts make great warm-up or assessment exercises. They can be used to set the stage and teach the content covered by the standards. They can also be used to assess what students have learned after the content has been taught. Content is aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and includes Geometry, Ratio and Proportional Relationships. The Number System, Expressions and Equations, and Statistics and Probability. The workbooks in the Common Core Math Workouts series are designed to help teachers and parents meet the challenges set forth by the Common Core State Standards. They are filled with skills practice and problem-solving practice exercises that correspond to each standard. With a little time each day, your students will become better problem solvers and will acquire the skills they need to meet the mathematical expectations for their grade level.

How can teachers meet the growing diversity of learning needs in their classrooms? Furthermore, how do teachers meet this challenge in the midst of increasing pressures to master specified content? How to Differentiate Your Math Instruction: Lessons, Ideas, and Videos with Common Core Support shares classroom practices that help all students be successful and that give teachers the means to honor individual students and meet curricular outcomes simultaneously. The need for differentiation has never been clearer; as stated in the introduction to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, "The Standards should be read as allowing for the widest possible range of students to participate fully from the outset, along with appropriate accommodations to ensure maximum participation of students with special education needs." This multimedia resource offers: 21 video examples that illustrate how everything from menus and tiered tasks to math workshops and multiple intelligences centers can be carried out in the classroom; support for the Common Core State Standards of Mathematics, including lesson examples that focus on certain standards and integrate mathematical practices; Take Action! callouts that highlight exceptional ideas for differentiation and allow a reader-friendly way to access the text; and reproducibles (downloads provided upon purchasing this resource). This resource includes 21 video segments filmed in actual K-5 classrooms. Clips range from one to twelve minutes in length, with a total viewing time of approximately one hour and thirty minutes.

Exploring Mathematics Through Play in the Early Childhood Classroom

View: 995

This practical book provides pre- and inservice teachers with an understanding of how math can be learned through play. The author helps teachers to recognize the mathematical learning that occurs during play, to develop strategies for mathematizing that play, and to design formal lessons that make connections between mathematics and play. Common Core State Standards are addressed throughout the text to demonstrate the ways in which play is critical to standards-based mathematics teaching, and to help teachers become more familiar with these standards. Classroom examples illustrate that, unlike most formal tasks, play offers children opportunities to solve nonroutine problems and to demonstrate a variety of mathematical ways of thinking—such as perseverance and attention to precision. This book will help put play back into the early childhood classroom where it belongs. Book Features: Makes explicit connections to play and the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. Offers many examples of free play activities in which mathematics can be highlighted, as well as formal lessons that are inspired by play. Provides strategies for making assessments more playful, helping teachers meet increasing demands for assessment data while also reducing child stress. Includes highlight boxes with recommended resources, questions for reflection, key research findings, vocabulary, lesson plan templates, and more. “This is one of those books that I wish I had written. It is smart, readable, relevant, and authentically focused on children.” —From the Foreword by Elizabeth Graue, Sorenson Professor of Early Childhood Education, University of Wisconsin “In this deceptively easy-to-read book, Amy Parks explains two things that could make a world of difference in early childhood and elementary classrooms: Mathematics isn’t something in a workbook—it’s a fascinating part of the real world; And playing in school isn’t a luxury—it’s an essential context for learning about all sorts of things, including mathematics. Through vignettes of children learning mathematics as they play, Parks helps teachers recognize their ‘answerability to the moment,’ eschewing someone else’s determination of ‘best practice’ in favor of what works with actual children eager to learn mathematics.” —Rebecca New, School of Education, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
