Putting Side menu in a grid column

hey all! i am new with ionic framework , and i really need help here , i have been trying to add a sidemenu from the ionic presets using , but only needed in a column not on the entire page. but i failed to do that, since whatever i do , the sidemenu messes up everything and takes all the available screen.

This also happened to me with Tabs so i think it’s something form the ionic framework or, am i missing something?
please i really need help for this one.
