Our recommended schedule for Core Day instruction in Grades 1–5 is designed around a 75-minute math block. Teachers begin with Whole Group Fluency and Word Problems, for 10-15 minutes. Next, students break into two groups to learn new content in two ways: Independent Digital Lessons and Small Group Instruction. Each rotation takes ~30 minutes.
Our recommended schedule for Kindergarten is designed around a 50- to 65-minute math black. Teachers begin with 30–45 minutes of Whole Group Fluency, Word Problems, and Teacher-led instruction. Next, students break into two groups to practice math skills and learn new content in two ways: Digital Activities and Problem Sets. Each rotation takes ~10 minutes.
This model gives students the opportunity to learn grade-level content through a mix of modalities, share their thinking with a range of learners, and receive personalized feedback and support.
