  I really enjoyed utilizing the Focused Intervention Kits this summer. The materials that were provided in the kits were very useful and resourceful. I was able to pinpoint exactly what skills my students needed to work on based on the results from the Pretest. The lessons were great for whole group and small group lessons. I plan to utilize some of the information from the kit next year!!  

  The goal of raising expectations and achievement gains for what students should learn and be able to do academically makes it increasingly important to use the precise instructional materials in math and reading that are effective at improving student achievement, Teacher Created Materials math and reading kits is just the right fit. The eight-step curricular process begins with a shared experience, which is an activity, task, or game that is open-ended, lesson focus, word work, language and vocabulary, written responsive, challenge question, quick checks and can be a stand-alone experience or one built on students’ life experiences. As a teacher, I appreciated that I didn’t have to pull materials for reading and math intervention time blocks for my students, therefore leaving more time to plan for the mini-lessons.  

  Focused Mathematics and Focused Reading were a huge success. Students and teachers loved them. Our students showed SIGNIFICANT growth in Reading and Math. Students asked why they couldn't use the kits throughout the year. My teachers said that it was the easiest summer they have had and would teach again if they could use the kits. I can't thank you enough for your support and help with the project. It was a HUGE success.  

  The kits provided the essential elements and resources needed to address students of varying backgrounds, reading abilities, and learning styles. The teachers within our program were able to follow all lessons with ease as well as implement the suggested research-based strategies to ensure that they were addressing and meeting each child’s academic needs in reading and math.

A Focus on Mathematics Intervention is Key to Future Fact Fluency and Math Accuracy in Students

Teacher Created Materials strives to support students and educators with evidence-based learning strategies and research-based teaching tools to help them succeed in all subjects. Our Focused Mathematics Intervention kits are great classroom and summer school resources for individual students and groups alike, with students experiencing an average gain of 23.8% between pre and post test scores (p.25, FMI White Paper) as a direct result of intervention.

Students as early as kindergarten must develop an understanding of basic math concepts to ensure future fact fluency and successful math achievement in later grades, especially when performing applied math skills like solving word problems. Students with learning disabilities like language or math disabilities are especially at risk of struggling during math activities, so teachers are encouraged to perform regular formative assessments - like those found within our kit - to identify and provide intervention for struggling learners as early as possible.

In conjunction with our intervention kits, we offer additional resources to educators like our free On-Demand Webinars with Alex Kajitani and Alan Becker. These free math intervention workshops provide educators with pertinent information and key strategies to:

  1. identify and reverse learning loss through intensive intervention during summer school programs,
  2. combat current and future learning loss due to the pandemic, and
  3. how to engage students successfully when learning math online.

For educators looking for more information on conducting math interventions, such as Tier 1 practices in classroom math interventions for elementary students, please feel free to contact an experienced TCM educational consultant today.
