What are Math Interventions?
Dayton Elementary School is excited to be able to offer additional support in mathematics in Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade during the school day. This support is in the form of small, flexible groups (similar to guided reading) based on the specific and common needs of the students. Topics may include forward or backward counting, numeral identification, adding and subtracting strategies, and structure of numbers.
Children are chosen for the groups based on assessments from the previous year, teacher recommendation, along with information gathered from specific mathematics assessments. The groups run for about two weeks. After the completion of the cycle, the children may or may not be in a group for the next two weeks. The teachers involved in teaching these groups meet frequently to discuss the progress and ongoing needs of the children.
These groups meet for 15 minutes each day. The teachers who run the groups may include the Math Recovery teacher as well as other trained support teachers assigned to that grade level, such as Supplemental Programs teachers, ESL teachers, or Special Education teachers. Students may work with a variety of teachers over the course of the year. Students who are not in groups are working on other math learning activities.
We look forward to working with your child on number sense and computation skills throughout the year. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me using the link at the left side of this page. Thank you for your support of math at home.
