If you are ready to implement the Math Workshop, but don't know where to start, this is for you! The LINK Math Workshop Framework is a system I created to help you manage your math workshop. In this download you will find an overview of the management system, 2 sample schedules for the LINK Math Workshop, 5 weeks of plans to layout an idea of how to launch the LINK Math Workshop successfully, blank templates you can use to plan, labels to categorize your math stations, 4 sample I-Charts, a sample I-Can list, a list of ways to praise a partner, and an "Ask 3 Before Me" sign. The 5 week launch plans I created were for my 1st grade classroom. It should be easy, though, to modify for your classroom by changing the activities. Although it is not necessary for you to buy, my plans mention many of the activities found in my Pattern Unit and Beginning Number Concepts Unit. It will be available in my store very soon. Enjoy!
I am a 1st grade teacher in her 3rd year of teaching who is determined to make learning meaningful and fun. I won't do something simply because it's cute. When I design lessons for my students, I make sure it is engaging as well as worth our time. I really like to get the most "bang for my buck" if you will. You can expect to get something worth your time, not just "cute" when you purchase from me!
