I have recently revised this product as I have had a number of students who needed more support to develop these basic skills. I now teach intervention to small groups and individuals, so it was obvious to me that I needed to extend sections of the Workbook for specific students. Not all students will need to cover every section and the screener will identify which skills you need to cover for which groups or individuals.
This workbook was developed for Tier 2 and Tier 3 students and will need an adult to lead them through it, modelling the maths language that is so critical for concept development at this early stage. You can give the book to a teacher aide or parent helper as the Workbook is designed for this purpose. When I was teaching a class I would have loved to have something like this I could pass to someone and say, "Do page 3 and 4. You'll need scissors and tape." You can differentiate quite easily in this way.
All answers are included and the Task Cards are also listed in my store as a separate item. The Task Cards have been developed for consolidation and can be included in a Maths Centre. A student answer sheet is included and students can work independently through the sequence of skills.
The Workbook I have developed for Tier 1 and Tier 2 students is Catch-Up, Keep-Up Fractions and Decimals. That workbook covers the range of skills from Year 1 to Year 5.
The games that consolidate the skills covered in this program are the DONKEY Card Games. There are a number in my store, covering fractions of a collection as well as matching fractions of a shape. The range available means you can differentiate by putting a few sets in a Maths Centre.
ACARA references are included for Australian teachers who need them.
