Following on from the success of her book Math Work Stations, Debbie Diller now brings the world of math stations to life, demonstrating how you too can effectively incorporate math stations into your instruction to enhance your students' conceptual understanding and skills. Debbie works with both 1st and 2nd grade teachers and students, demonstrating how to: find the time and space for math stations organize and manage manipulatives move from whole-group lessons to stations work foster all-important math talk and much more. Both the larger purpose of math stations - how they connect big ideas to meaningful independent practice - and the detailed nuts and bolts of creating and implementing stations in the math classroom are explored in this video. Moving into Math Stations, K-2 brings together the joy and the rigor of young children's math learning. Join Debbie as she makes it happen! About The Author Debbie Diller has been a national consultant since 2000, but she still has "those 'back-to-school' dreams in the fall." After playing school in the basement of her childhood home in Lititz, Pennsylvania, she earned her bachelor's and master's degrees in education from Millersville University and Temple University and spent the next thirty years as an educator. Debbie's ideas for her books also come from her work with teachers. She listens for frequently asked questions, patterns, teachers' needs and keeps a writer's notebook to collect ideas, thoughts, and notes. "Often, the old joke comes to mind: 'how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.' That's how I write: Bit by bit, on planes, in hotel rooms, in my office on a rare day. Teachers' questions and comments spur me on through my daily, ongoing work in classrooms, which sustains my work."
