STAAR and TEKS specific spiraled question are designed to replicate the format and frequency of the questions students will experience on the STAAR Test. Utilize the tracking document to track student progress in each of the Math TEKS throughout the school year. STAAR Spirals are available in a print and ship bound consumable format or through a .pdf format with our Teacher Subscription. Using Sprialed Practice has the greatest impact directly on STAAR success. Students practice daily the same strategies, skills, and concepts in the same format they will face at the end of the school year. The power of intentional spiraled practice allows all students to develop success, whether they grasp a concept the first time it is taught in September, or sometime in November or February when that concept spirals back to them.
Content specific Wall Work sets are designed to increase student engagement and allow quick assessment of student understanding of key concepts at each grade level. Use as a five-minute whole group activity or print multiple sets for table activities, homework practice, or intervention lessons. Students love them, and administrators love what they do for your classroom. Our Wall Work library continues to grow and is available with our Teacher Subscription. We take teacher requests for Wall Work topics. Using Wall Work results in an immediate, positive change in classroom dynamics and individual growth in concept understanding. All students are engaged. Students who remained on the periphery are now part of the lesson. Classes move by quickly and are more fun for teachers and students.
Students need the words to talk the talk of mathematics. Highly visual vocabulary cards, specific to each grade level, lead to success for all students, including At Risk groups. Vocabulary Cards are part of our Teacher Subscription and come with detailed directions for successful implementation. Using Vocabulary Cards to develop grade appropriate math vocabulary has the greatest overall impact in a students’ long-term mathematics development. Using our Vocabulary Cards school-wide at each grade level creates a school culture of mathematics problem solvers who are able to express ideas as true mathematicians.
