Zearn Math offers materials for teachers to plan and lead instruction that ensures students deeply learn the math content of their grade. These include Whole Group Word Problems, Whole Group Fluency, and Small Group Lessons.
Small Group Lessons give students opportunities to deeply learn math with concrete manipulatives, direct feedback, and discussion. Using the Small Group Lessons, teachers are able to work with a smaller group to provide more targeted instruction and feedback to students. They have more time to facilitate discussion and hear a variety of student strategies. With only half the class, teachers get to see what each child is modeling with their manipulatives and writing on their whiteboard. Teachers can also share feedback in the moment and develop a deeper understanding of the needs of each child.
Downloadable and printable Small Group Lessons are available on each Mission page. Each Small Group Lesson includes space to annotate the Lesson based on students’ needs, required concrete materials, and debrief questions to prompt discussion. There are also recommended optional problems for remediation and enrichment.
For a list of recommended concrete materials by grade, please see these Manipulative Kits.
