Over the past 10 years, I have been using guided math instruction in my classroom. I have spent countless hours trying to gather materials from everywhere to make this approach work. This year I decided to put everything I wanted in one place and write my own first-grade math curriculum. Introducing…Master Math.
What is Master Math?

How does guided math look in Master Math?
First, we gather together for a 5-10 minute whole group lesson. I use the SMART board for these lessons and I have them laid out and ready to go (they come in a pdf version too). I go through the slides with the class. They contain discussion questions to introduce the topic we will be working on. At the end of the slides, there are 6 different activities they will do for each rotation. I provide just a visual of the activity. I use the visual to explain what they will be doing at each rotation.
Let’s take a look at each part of Master Math!
Here are Some Helpful Tips
1. I always color-code my worksheets when printing.
*enrichment is yellow
*apply skills are pink
* manipulatives blue
2. I always stick to my 8 minutes with a 2-minute transition time. If they don’t finish, it is ok. We do our best and move on.
3. At the last rotation, the students bring all materials in the two tubs over to an assigned area. Then, I go through and gather papers and replace the tubs for the next day’s activities.
4. I copy an entire chapter and have it all prepped by the day before beginning a unit.
5. I store all of my lesson plans in a binder.
6. I store all of my games and activities in a tub.
l could never teach math in a whole group setting again. Not only do I love everything about Master Math, but my students do as well. They are upset on shortened days when we can’t fit it in. Guided Math has changed the way I teach math instruction for the better!
