This math review program was designed for use in a second grade general education classroom. However, it can be used for a variety of ages and educational levels depending on needs. Additionally, the format allows for you to use it with a whole class, small group, in a tutoring session, as at home review, or with homeschooling. The options are truly limitless.
There are two primary pieces for each week; a daily review Powerpoint and an end of the week assessment.
** Daily Review Powerpoint - each day of the week has 5 slides, focusing on different mathematical skills. The skills are identical for each day in a week, just the problems or tasks are different. For example, if the weekly computation skill is missing addends each day the students will be asked to complete number sentences with missing addends. However, the problems will be different each day. Each Powerpoint has 25 slides and is suitable for both large group use via a presentation system or small group or individual use on a computer. Some teachers have also printed out the math review slides for individual or take-home work.
** Weekly Assessment - to end each week students are asked to complete an assessment of the skills covered during that week. There is one question for each of the covered skills and is identical to a question the students completed during the week.
Tips for Successful Use:
**The skills covered are general second grade skills which match or provide review for a variety of state standards.
** During the daily review time, I read a problem or question to the class and then gave them time to respond and complete the task. We then would talk about that problem before moving on to the next problem. Students were expected to fix any incorrect work.
** Students can complete the daily work in a variety of ways. Some teachers choose to use the included practice sheet that students record responses to what they see on the projection screen. Others utilize a daily math journal where students are taught to format their daily responses directly into the journal. Students in an individual setting may also record their responses on a dry erase board and receive immediate feedback from the instructor.
