The PREVIEW contains the Contents page from the program, so it will give you a good idea how the program is organised. ACARA references are provided.
This program is designed to hand to a teaching assistant who understands how it is organised. The SCREENERS will identify skill deficits and facilitate ability grouping. The PROGRAM includes concept development and strategies for consolidation. Not all pages will need to be completed. As soon as a skill is mastered, move on.
The ANSWER BOOK is included and gives extra suggestions for concept development, consolidation and generalising. If you use a teaching assistant you have the benefit of REAL TIME remediation and consolidation. Because you are targeting the skill deficit directly you will see progress quickly. Moving on to consolidation means using a game.
I have recommended games when they are relevant because I know they work. I use them all the time in my intervention sessions and they provide the repetition that some students need. I send them home for family fun time but you could also put them in a Maths Centre. 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. I have included this program in a bundle of games targeting skills at this level if you wish to go this way.
Alternatively you could reduce the pages to 50%. They are purposely not crowded for intervention purposes but you could reduce and copy back to back for whole of class lessons. The Task Cards could be added to a Maths Centre.
