INTERVENTION MATHS PROGRAM - IMP Year 5 - Number, Place Value, Decimals, Patterns and Algebra

INTERVENTION MATHS PROGRAM - IMP Year 5 - Number, Place Value, Decimals, Patterns and Algebra

This product contains the following: INTERVENTION PROGRAM (88 pages) - Concept Development pages - Consolidation activities - Fun stuff (2 games) - 60 Task Cards (Answers in Answer Book) - Posters (Factors and Multiples, Division with Remainders, Divisibility) - Worksheets (individual, group or whole class) - all answers provided - Screener (Years 2 to 5 Number and Place Value, Decimals, Patterns and Algebra) ANSWER BOOK (86 pages) - Ideas to extend concept development - Consolidation ideas - References to games which target specific skill deficits This is the program I wished I had many years ago when my classroom had 26 students across all primary grades. Time was very precious. However, in any classroom there is the need to differentiate and this program will save teachers time. The screeners included can be administered to the whole class and will identify skill deficits so you can target your intervention accordingly.  I have put up a free sample which lists the CONTENTS and gives you an idea of the organisation and the kinds of resources included. ACARA references are provided for Australian teachers who need to refer to them. It includes a sample of the Answer Book includes answers to all questions and also provides extra ideas when concept development is the target. It lists games and links for consolidation. I would give this program to a teaching assistant once skill targets and individuals or groups have been identified. The teaching assistant would have the ANSWER BOOK to REMEDIATE in real time and consolidate in REAL TIME. Students will progress quickly because skill deficits are targeted directly and no time is wasted. Consolidate with games and include these in the regular classroom environment where your intervention group can teach the others. This is an ideal way to be inclusive and to generalise skills. The 60 Task Cards can be used in Intervention or they can be added to a Maths Centre, depending on the level of skill development across the class. I recommend games because I use them all the time in my intervention sessions and I know they work. The repetition of playing a game leads to mastery. The trick is to match the game to the skill deficit so your students progress. All the links are given in the program to help you do just that.

LITERACY INTERVENTION HANDBOOK - The HOW and WHAT of Literacy Intervention

LITERACY INTERVENTION HANDBOOK - The HOW and WHAT of Literacy Intervention

This Handbook contains 128 pages. It includes all you need for literacy intervention for 8 to 12 year-olds: --- Assessments to enable you to differentiate - whole class, individual and small group --- Sequence and screen for phonological skills --- Reading intervention ideas --- Activities to develop reading/fluency/comprehension --- Activities to develop phonological skills --- Activities to develop oral vocabulary --- Activities to develop writing and spelling --- Sample RTI plan --- Appendix: morphological elements/Neurological Impress Method/Screeners EXTRA: Catalogue of Literacy Resources This handbook has been many years in the making. Most classes have a range of students at various stages of literacy development. How you manage this range and what you teach is critical for each student to progress individually, whether they are gifted, 'average', or needing intervention. Over the past 30 years, as I taught 5 to 15 year-olds, I have been making adjustments to curriculum, classroom management and skill sequences. Differentiating and scaffolding have become my specialty. I have taught in town schools as well as in communities. I have taught in classrooms with lots of aide time and parent volunteers but I have also had classes with no help at all. You manage around the resources you have available. You are the only person who can identify your management plan, but this program will give you the focus and direction. This handbook is my current practice and is based upon sound research and years of experience. My literacy intervention sessions focus on reading and I teach skills in the context of real books that my kids are interested in. This way I foster a love of reading and develop literacy skills at the same time. Games provide the consolidation and fun that keeps the sessions lighthearted and motivating. There is no better way to address a skills deficit than by playing a game that targets that deficit. That is why I have so many games in my shop. I call it TARGETTED INTERVENTION and it works! This resource will also suit the needs of the home-schooler enabling targeted teaching to ensure literacy skills progress. I believe skills are (usually) sequential and need to be taught explicitly in intervention. Unless you target, plan and differentiate, your students won't experience the progress they are entitled to. This Handbook will help you target and play. BUT ... before you buy it (or reject it), I have a sample in my shop for you to read. It's free, as all good samples are, and it will give you an idea of the contents and the way I have presented my work. I hope you like it and you try TARGETTED INTERVENTION.

FACTORS and MULTIPLES POSTER A4 size -  FREE

FACTORS and MULTIPLES POSTER A4 size - FREE

This poster is included with the game GET OUT. The complete product contains: - 6 GET OUT Boards - 63 Number Cards - Directions The first game I made like this was Number Number because some of my intervention students were still grappling with the number terms they needed (Composite, Prime, Triangular and Square numbers). It worked well, so when I found the same obstacle with the terms Factors and Multiples I resolved to make a similar game to address the difficulty. Here it is. Games are so effective in addressing this type of issue that I don't know why they're not part of every curriculum. Abstract concepts like number terms need the constant exposure that only a game provides for some students. This one is simple and quick. There's a short and a long version, so it can take anything from 5 to 15 minutes. It's all there in the directions. Just get it out when you are teaching these concepts and let the game do the consolidation for you. Teach your intervention group first. You are being inclusive when you add it to a Maths Centre and all your students can play.

COMMONLY CONFUSED WORDS - ITS and IT'S - BOARD GAME

COMMONLY CONFUSED WORDS - ITS and IT'S - BOARD GAME

THIS package contains: --- 8 GAME BOARDS --- 96 SENTENCE CARDS (2 sets - 48 in each set) --- DIRECTIONS --- A4 size POSTER --- ANSWERS I developed this game some years ago. Many of my students were confusing 'than' and 'then'. It was a minor skill as far as literacy goes, but one that persists over years if not explicitly remediated. The game was very successful, and if it was played regularly for about a week, the problem disappeared. Since then I have extended the game to more confused words as the need has arisen. I specialise in literacy and numeracy and I find games like this are motivating and effective in addressing specific skill deficits. I teach and then consolidate with the game. It is designed so a teacher can use it in a Literacy Centre or it can be sent home for Family Fun Time. Either way, it's regular playing for a week or so that will work.

SIGHT WORDS - FRY'S First 100 Sight Words - 4 sets of  Bingo Games with 12 boards in each game

SIGHT WORDS - FRY'S First 100 Sight Words - 4 sets of Bingo Games with 12 boards in each game

This package contains four sets of games: Set 1 - Sight Words 1 -25 - 12 boards + Blank Board Set 2 - Sight Words 26-50 - 12 boards + Blank Board Set 3 - Sight Words 51-75 - 12 boards + Blank Board Set 4 - Sight Words 76-100 - 12 boards + Blank Board FLASHCARDS - 4 sets (four to an A4 page) WORD CARDS - 1 set (9 to a page) + Directions This bundle complements my FRY'S FREEBIE STARTER BUNDLE and extends skill development with three more sets of games. Each set has 12 boards so you can play with up to 12 students, or more in groups. You will just need to provide nine counters or plastic coins for each board. I like mixing ability groups in a whole-class activity. The more skilled students will support other members of the team. The blank boards are included for differentiating for small group work and would complement my FRY'S FREEBIE which has a student recording sheet and class overview so you can identify skill deficits and ability groups. All sets are in black and white, but you can add colour prior to laminating if you wish. There are no spelling clashes in Fry's first 100, so this set is suitable for all English classrooms. Games are a great way to consolidate learning and the positive attitude that students bring to games enhances learning.

ONSETS and RIMES WORD WHEELS - 50 Most Common Rimes + Blank Word Wheel

ONSETS and RIMES WORD WHEELS - 50 Most Common Rimes + Blank Word Wheel

These Word Wheels comprise the explicit teaching component of my intervention. I find some of my students really benefit from the multi-sensory aspect of turning the wheel and developing phonemic awareness at the same time. In my intervention sessions I get them to use the word in a sentence after they pronounce it. Then I get them to go around the wheel as fast as they can. You can use the Screener for 74 Common Rimes that I have available for free if you like. For consolidation you can use my RIME Task Cards and play RIME SWITCHEROO. Both provide the repetition that ensures the skill is retained in long term memory.

RIMES - 64 Most Common Rimes - 64 sets of  Flash Cards and 64 Task Cards + Screener

RIMES - 64 Most Common Rimes - 64 sets of Flash Cards and 64 Task Cards + Screener

I use these Flash Cards and Task Cards as part of my intervention. The Flash Cards provide explicit teaching and the Task Cards begin consolidation. The screening process could begin with my Quick Literacy Placement Screener which can be administered to the whole class. This first screening stage will allow you to prioritise your time and identify who needs to undergo the second stage screening process which is one on one. Once your screening results are collated you can begin targeted intervention with individuals and small groups. I use my RIME SWITCHEROO game for consolidation and it works very well. I target three unknown rimes at a time and, with regular playing through the week, all are usually known one week later. You will find most students will master this rime collection quickly and reading ability will improve.

RIMES - Screener and Flip Book for TARGETED INTERVENTION

This product contains four items: - Checklist of 74 Rimes (from Speech Pathology and Learning Support) - Flip Book for one-on-one administration - 2 Photos on Flip Book assembly This is where I start when I have identified students who need to develop phonemic awareness of onset and rime. You could start the process of ability grouping by administering my Quick Literacy Placement Screener (available free) to the whole class and this will help to prioritise who needs one-on-one for targeted intervention. Collating the results from this second stage screening process will identify skill deficits by group.

SIGHT WORD BUNDLE - FRY'S Third Hundred - Flashcards/Task Card Sentences/Tags/Assessment + Games

SIGHT WORD BUNDLE - FRY'S Third Hundred - Flashcards/Task Card Sentences/Tags/Assessment + Games

This bundle contains: --- Flashcards Fry's Sight Words 1-300 --- Individual Student Record 1-300 --- Class Overviews --- Tag Set (25 to a page) 1-300 --- Small Cards (100 to an A4 page) Words 201-300 --- Word Cards (9 to a page) 1-300 GAMES --- Climb and Slide Blank Board Game --- Race Day Blank Board Game --- Wordo Blank Board --- Word Bingo - 4 sets (25 words to a set) 201-300 I have been working on this bundle for many years. Sight words are a critical element of a balanced literacy program and I have used the FRY'S first three hundred for over twenty years. It doesn't really matter what sight word list you choose as long as it has integrity and you use it systematically. I specialise in learning difficulties now but I have expanded the bundle to cater for a whole class. I know how precious time is in a busy classroom, so the bundle reflects a wide range of applications. I use the tags when I administer the Individual screener. They are on a ring and the student flips each card as they read. There are three columns on the recording sheet as I have found it necessary to retest to ensure that the sight word has been retained in memory after a couple of weeks or a month. If a word is known quickly I tick, if it is known but slow, I mark an S and if a word is not known or misread I put a dot. The target words have an S or a dot. Dr Fry recommended teaching five at a time, but I vary this according to the student's capacity The small cards (100 to a page) are the student's record of what they know. I would let them mark the known words as they track their progress. The word cards can be used in intervention or small groups. You can print two lots of whatever sets you are working on and play games like Fish or Memory. I would use the Flashcards for a whole class and they are ideal for Word Bingo. The Sentence Task Cards can be used for reading groups or rotations as well as a Literacy Centre. I would use them in intervention also, targeting the words your students need. These cards provide a transition between reading the sight word and writing it. I have made the Task Cards multi-sensory and very structured. I find this is most effective in intervention, so they will suit most students. The games are the fun element and they take the boredom out of consolidating new skills. You are looking for fluency, so the repetition provides the regular practice that some students need. There are enough Bingo Boards to play with thewhole class in groups. I used to play with mixed ability groups of three, giving each player three counters or plastic coins. They are in black and white so I would add some colour before laminating.

I have dressed them up and expanded them to suit whole class teaching as well as intervention. These days I am semi-retired but I still specialise in learning difficulties, so the bundle is big to cater for a wide range of applications. I administer the individual record one-on-one and this identifies the skill deficits I need to target. The blank board games are included because I find they work very well, especially when I can involve parents to play between intervention sessions. Adding them to a Literacy Centre would also work. I have added the Overviews because it will make it easier to collate the results and identify ability groups and target words. The small cards (100 to a page) are the child's individual record of what they know. They keep their own record this way and it can be quite motivating to see the page fill up. The Sentences can be added to a Literacy Centre or you could use them in Intervention like I do. They provide the transition between a known sight word and writing. Retrieving the word from memory is the first step. Being able to write it is the second. Each line in the Task Card is graduated in difficulty, but the previous line provides the scaffolding that some students need to learn to write the word. I prefer using sentences rather than single words. The cards are multi-sensory involving cutting, pasting, reading and writing. There are no spelling clashes in the second hundred and I have added Australia and Britain as alternatives to America if you need those cards. There are also blank cards for you to add anything different if you wish. This bundle is all you should need to get started with sight words at this level. My Starter Bundle of the words 1 to 100 is free in my store and you may need it if you have to cater for a wider range of ability than this second bundle. You could add the Word Bingo Games to a Literacy Centre, or include them in Reading Groups. They are in black and white, but I would add a bit of colour prior to laminating to jazz them up. They will last for years. I have made extra boards so you can play with a whole class in groups for consolidation

SIGHT WORDS - FRY'S FIRST 100 - Sentences - Transition from reading to writing with these TASK CARDS

SIGHT WORDS - FRY'S FIRST 100 - Sentences - Transition from reading to writing with these TASK CARDS

These Task Cards have been developed to consolidate the first 100 FRY'S SIGHT WORDS which comprise approximately 50% of words in print. The Task Cards complement my FRY'S STARTER BUNDLE which is an ideal way to identify ability groups and begin an Intervention Program. Alternatively, you could use the Task Cards for the transition from instant recall to writing. I prefer to make this transition with sentences rather than individual words. I have used a multi-sensory approach because I find most of my intervention students are still at this developmental stage. I have also developed a Word Bingo bundle that contains four sets of games focussing on each of the 25 words in the first hundred. They can be played with a whole class for both consolidation and lots of fun. Each set contains a blank board for individualisation. It is essential that learners are confident with sight words to ensure a balanced approach to literacy and steady progress in reading. These Task Cards can also be used for intervention or as a group activity in Reading Rotations. I would even add them to a Literacy Centre once students knew how to complete each card.

This workbook revises fifths and tenths, but also revises previously taught concepts for consolidation before introducing decimals. It is the third workbook in the series. FRACTION FUN 1: halves, quarters, eighths FRACTION FUN 2: thirds, sixths, ninths, twelfths and introduction to fifths and tenths FRACTION FUN 3: fifths and tenths with an introduction to decimals The three workbooks provide the foundation for further work in fractions and decimals. The Task Cards in this package can be added to a Maths Centre so students can progress at their own rate. I would also add my DONKEY fraction games which are perfect for consolidation and provide lots of fun as well. The variety within the games means you can mix and match and differentiate according to the needs of your learners. ACARA References are provided for those teachers who need them.
