Now Online: Math Work Stations

January 19th, 2011

After I had been speaking and writing about literacy work stations for years, teachers began raising the question, ‘Could we do this in math, too?’ Absolutely!

Debbie Diller’s much-anticipated new book, Math Work Stations, is at the printer and due in our warehouse February 7. We’ve just posted the entire text online—more than 300 full-color pages filled with practical ideas for teaching math in grades K-2, with photos from real classrooms throughout to make implementation easy.

Start with advice on organizing all kinds of manipulatives and creating classroom spaces for math. See how to introduce work stations through mini-lessons. Then explore dozens of specific work stations on beginning number concepts, addition & subtraction, place value, geometry, and measurement. Each chapter guides teachers on:

  • materials;
  • what to model in whole-group;
  • how to troubleshoot common problems;
  • differentiating instruction;
  • adapting ideas to kindergarten;
  • assessment;
  • making connections to problem solving, literature, and technology.

The appendix includes more than 50 reproducible forms and charts.
