Mrs. Wills Kindergartenon May 26, 2011 at 3:21 pm |jodicaseThanks for providing this learning opportunity! It is a great way to stay on course with your resource! I need to get your resource: Math Workstations.

on May 27, 2011 at 7:57 pm |Jo KincaidI am so excited about attending your workshop about Math Work Stations in August!!! The blogs sound like a fabulous way for me to hold out until then.

on May 29, 2011 at 3:26 am |ChrissyI am very excited to join this study! Your book is exactly what I need to balance the math program for my kindergartners.

Thanks for posting the links; these wonderful women are all on my blog list and their creativity has enriched my teaching!

I’m looking forward to studying and learning from all the teachers reading the book.

on June 15, 2011 at 1:23 pm |BeadboardHi Debbie! I have your book on order. Question: I have a small room. Getting new tables.

With work stations in mind, would it be better to order a couple of long (72″) tables(for large group time) & then the children can be on the floor around the room for work stations, or order smaller tables & scatter the tables for the work stations. My husband said longer tables will take up less room. I guess my main question is: Are the work stations set up at tables or floor or will it really matter? thanks!

on June 26, 2011 at 11:54 pm |JeannieI am absolutely love the discussion – thanks for getting this started. I have always wanted to have a group discussion on math strategies, ideas, etc. but no one at school was really interested. Now I have an opportunity – THANKS!

on June 28, 2011 at 3:51 pm |BeadboardHi for those of us just getting our books, will the resources remain available until we can get caught up, or do we need to jump in where you are because they will become unavailable?

on June 29, 2011 at 3:51 pm |debbiedillerYou have time to catch up — I am sure the discussion will remain in the archives of participating blogs.

on July 5, 2011 at 7:16 pm |Cathy HammettI have added a post on my blog with chapter notes and resources for those of us who were a little behind. It goes all the way back to the beginning of the book.

I’ve been using your Literacy Work Stations for quite sometime in my kindergarten class. And then I found out about your Math Stations! However, in the new school year, I will be teaching grade 6. I’ve seen the extension of your Literacy Stations for grades 3-6 in Practice with Purpose. I was wondering if you were going to extend the Math Stations as well.

on June 2, 2013 at 11:53 am |Nancy KincaidI am a Preschool teacher in a public school. I do not have the Math or Literacy books but watched a presentation about the Math stations. I am planning on buying the books and am already working on some ideas for next year. I can’t wait to see the discussions coming up!

on June 5, 2013 at 8:54 pm |Amy JohnsonI would also like to know if you plan on having a Math Stations book for upper elementary. Or do you have a resource you would recommend where students might be given a real world problem and then use the center to solve the problem – Practice with Purpose.
