Guided Math in Action by Dr. Nicki Newton Book Study

Come join in our first exploration together, a book study of Dr. Nicki Newton's, Guided Math in Action: Building Each Student's Mathematical Proficiency with Small-Group Instruction (K-5).   We intended to begin the study on July 9th, but we wanted to give everyone enough time to get their hands on the text.  For this reason, the book study will kick off Sunday, July 13th!

Want to purchase Guided Math in Action?

Option 1: We have secured a special price from Routledge, the publisher of Nicki Newton's Guided Math in Action--$8.45 off of the publisher's price!!  That's $26.50 plus $5.99 shipping and handling (tax is included in the text price).  

To order a copy, just click the Buy Now PayPal button below--DO NOT ORDER FROM THE PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE.  

You will be directed to pay through Sarah's personal PayPal account (Rustic Threads).   

Check out and MAKE SURE to provide the following information (can be typed in the comments box when checking out)--your first and last name, the address where you would like the text to be shipped, your email address, and your phone number. 

We will be taking orders from now until 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 6th.  Order information will then be sent to the publisher so orders can be filled on Monday, July 7th.  We will take care of paying the bill from the publisher using buyers' payments made to PayPal. The friendly sales rep said that the texts should arrive to you by the end of that week (yet they do tell buyers 7-10 days, just to be safe). 

Option 2: You may also buy or rent a Kindle copy of the text from, if you have a Kindle or the Kindle app download on another device.

How would you like to participate?

I have a blog. --- Create a post (see schedule below), save our button to include in your post, link back to our post, and link up with your blog button and information. If you have a blog and plan to participate, please email us at  We would like to post a list of participating bloggers on the kick off day, Sunday, July 13th. :0)  Click here to visit our book study page to grab any related buttons you will need.

Happy 4th of July!


  1. I am trying to purchase the book through the PayPal button, but every time that I click it, it takes me to my account. What am I doing wrong?!

    1. April,

      So sorry for the trouble! I went ahead and reinserted the PayPal code in this post. I clicked on the button, and it works now. Thanks so much for letting us know this! So glad to have you join in the book study!


  2. Sarah,

    I was able to get it to work and just submitted my payment. I look forward to the book study!
