As teachers, there never seems to be enough hours in the day. When it comes to covering all the necessary learning material, staying on top of grading, managing a classroom full of students, and differentiating your instruction for students at all levels, it’s no surprise that so many teachers feel like they are constantly racing against the clock. If you’ve ever wondered how to implement guided math into your math block schedule, but aren’t sure how to fit it all in, read on to learn about my free guided math training for 1st-3rd grade teachers, where I show you exactly how to make time for guided math!
Is the Guided Math Framework Right For You?
If you teach elementary math and you struggle to reach all of your students and differentiate your instruction, you may know that it’s time to make a change to your math block. You may realize that whole group instruction isn’t helping you bridge the gaps that your students need to be successful and is actually presenting you with more challenges than positive impacts on your math block.
The guided math framework allows you to work with students in a small group setting so you can differentiate your instruction and meet them where they’re at. Guided math can easily be adapted to fit your schedule, your students, and your teaching style. It is not a rigid schedule, but instead, a flexible routine for structuring your math block. Plus, it can work with ANY curriculum, which you can learn more about in this blog post!
If you are ready to finally take control of your math block and meet your students where they’re at in their learning journey to help them be successful, then guided math is for you!
How to Make Time For Your Guided Math Schedule
Deciding that the guided math framework is the right fit for you and your students is the easy part. However, figuring out how to fit guided math into your already jam-packed schedule is another story.
If the thought of trying to fit small group instruction into your math block when you might only have 45 minutes to teach math stresses you out and brings you doubt, I know how you feel, and you’re not alone!
Even if you have more time than that, you might feel lost on where you’re supposed to start and how to implement a guided math schedule into your day. If you’re like most teachers out there, you are constantly feeling like there just isn’t enough time to teach all the things that your curriculum requires you to teach.
You may have even attended a guided math training before, but were left to figure it all out on your own without any guidance or support.
I’m here to tell you that if you are committed to ensuring that every student in your math class receives the support that they need to succeed with the guided math framework, it is 100% possible to make time to fit it all in! With a well-structured guided math schedule tailored to fit the specific needs of each student, you can help them achieve their full potential and thrive in the classroom.
The good news is, I’m here to help you every step of the way in my FREE guided math training: Making Time for Guided Math!

Free Making Time For Guided Math Training
I’ve been in your shoes and I know what it feels like to be overwhelmed, overloaded, and frustrated with my math block. After being asked by my administration to teach small groups, I was sent to a ½ day training and left with no resources, support, or guidance.
After a lot of trial and error, I created a system and guided math schedule that worked for me and allowed me to reach my students and break concepts down at their level. I was amazed at how quickly my students began to grow and master concepts during my math block!
You can check out my YouTube video on my journey to math block freedom, but long story short, I fell in love with the guided math framework and decided to help other teachers just like you learn how to make time for guided math so they could fall in love with teaching math all over again, too!
