  4. This week we will begin math centers during math time. This means the teacher will have a mini lesson on the days topic for up to 15 minutes (whole group). Then students will be divided up. One group will play Math games centered around that weeks Math lesson and/or games from past concepts. The second group will practice math facts on xtramath.org and lastly, the third group will meet with the teacher for a longer lesson and work on the workbook problems. Each group will rotate stations during the math block. This allows  the students to have more one on one time with the teacher to go over new concepts and gain a better understanding. Smaller groups also helps struggling students get more attention and help that they need.
