__Top 10 Guidelines for Independent Math Stations__

1. Start with academic goals in mind rather than materials at hand.

2. Use simple materials with simple procedures. Don't work yourself to death.

3. Tasks do NOT have to be changed weekly. Change them when students are tired of them or they no longer meet the learning needs of students.

4. Plan tasks in which the content may vary, but the basic game or procedures remain the same.

5. Assign tasks to address skills and concepts that have already been taught--use as review and maintenance. Students must be able to complete them successfully independently.

6. Model and have students role play the tasks before assigning them to be done independently.

7. Provide some form of accountability. This might be a recording sheet or weekly checklist of tasks to be completed.

8. Provide math Talking Point cards to accompany the tasks. Model how students should use these.

9. Have students work in pairs rather than larger groups. When more students are involved, there is often more time spent off task and more problems arise.

10. Have clear rituals and routines. Spend the first two weeks of school teaching these. Whenever necessary revisit them
