I have wanted to try a Math Workshop for a while now but was unsure how to implement it and exactly what students would be able to do independently at each station. I also have to teach our district curriculum so I needed something that would work with that. This product has answered all of my questions and more! Extremely thorough, step by step guide to getting it up and running.
