Starting, Sequencing, Scaffolding

giving access to all learners during math class

 "As a 4th grade teacher, we do a lot of work with fractions at the end of the year. We use a lot of visuals when teaching fractions because it's a new concept. I scaffold my lessons with hands-on manipulatives and work mats for everyone. This PD session gave me new ideas to share with my co-workers to help our students thrive!

Workshop Summary

In this workshop replay from the Build Math Minds Summit 2023, you'll learn how to grant all students access to your lessons each day by changing your launch, the sequence of ideas, and by offering the correct scaffolds. At the conclusion of the workshop you'll walk away with a list of scaffolds/downloads to use throughout your math block. Geared towards Grades 3-5, but the content is completely applicable for all grades K-6. The Scaffolds cover all grades K-6.

Math Genius Squad members, be sure to check your member's area, as you already have access to this replay.


How we start a lesson determines how much access and engagement students will have DURING the lesson.

Selecting & Sequencing

Using student work intentionally and purposefully allows students to continue on his/her learning path while seeing connections to more effective and efficient methods.

Keep the Main Thing, The Main Thing

When we provide the correct scaffolds for students, it allows us to stay on topic and on grade level even if students have unfinished learning.

 "Good morning! I JUST finished your session from the Build Math Minds Virtual Summit. Your ideas are exactly what my teacher heart needed. Can’t wait to get started implementing them! Thank you!!!
