My math lessons begin with whole group lessons followed by independent practice and small group instruction. For reinforcement, I start off each day with a review of math skills that have been previously taught. When planning math lessons, I keep in mind my student's learning style along with my lesson objectives. I go from a concrete lesson that use manipulatives to a more abstract less that extends to real life or applies to a different situation. This technique helps students comprehend each skill.
I will use diagnostic assessments and informal observations to guide instruction during whole group and small group instruction. Through small group instruction, I will be able to differentiate math lessons to meet each student's individual needs. While I am working with a small group of students, the other students will be doing Daily Math activities.
