Increase Math Achievement with Teacher CPR! After the whole-group mini-lesson, the students meet with their FLEXIBLE readiness groups. The groups are:
- Teacher: Tier instruction to offer support or use this time to teach students with advanced readiness different skills. Last year, many of my 2nd graders were doing 3rd grade work.
- Computation: Making 10s Card Game, Fast Fact Practice, Number Bonds - Once a week, students were given a sheet with 100 computation fluency problems. Once they finished the paper, they could do puzzles or pattern blocks. They were motivated to finish! :)
- Problem Solving: Model Drawing -- Button Cards and Bean Cards work well! They're self-checking. You can purchase them through Crystal Springs Books, http://www.crystalspringsbooks.com. I've seen them on Amazon too.
- Review: I use technology for this station. Front rowed.com is one of my favorite educational sites because it differentiates based on readiness. Plus, it gives teachers data!
