Tch DIY: Fourth Grade Math Routines

Math routines kristin gay

One of the most powerful things about routines in the math classroom is the structure of the activity stays the same while the content can change each time. Since the teachers in my building use these routines in all of the K-5 classrooms, it creates a structural coherence that is beneficial for both teachers and students.

This set of videos features fourth grade students doing the same set of routines you saw in the third grade series.

Supporting Material

While the videos give a good picture of the way the routine is run and the ways students think about the mathematics, the supporting documents on each page offer the viewer a broader context of what happened before and after the video. On each video page, be sure to scroll to the bottom right panel and look for the Supporting Materials section to find the planning page, reflection and resources, and student journal responses.

As always, I look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback so we can all learn and grow together!
