One of the best decisions I’ve made in my classroom is to implement guided math. Once I found a system that worked, I never looked back at whole group instruction. Regardless of the program your school uses, you can make guided math work for your classroom, too. Guided math is essentially four small groups and four math rotations, each with a specific focus. Some creative teacher came up with the acronym “MATH” to identify each rotation, although I’ve seen the letters used differently.
