This video is for teaching counting and transitioning to the counting on strategy for addition. This video shows how to instruct both the struggling leaner and the high achieving student simultaneously. All of these strategies can be used in tier 1, tier 2 or tier 3 intervention with either a Response to Intervention Model (RTI) or a Multi Systems of Support framework (MTSS). These math intervention strategies can be scaffolded for any level of leaner. For more strategies and resources please view the Primary Numeracy Intervention Program Training.
This video is for teaching the addition strategy of counting on. The focus of this intervention strategy is to transition the student from dropping back to one and counting all items, to counting on from the larger addend.
The make ten strategy can be introduced as early as first grade. This strategy teaches students how to make a ten then quickly add on. A student has to understand the concepts of making a ten, decomposing numbers, and adding from a base ten in order to understand how to use this strategy.
This intervention strategy and activity can be done as a demonstration lesson, then use the materials below to have have students practice the strategy in a concrete way, then scaffold, and turn the hands on strategy to a mental strategy. This strategy can be use for tier 1, tier 2, or tier 3 intervention.
For more materials for the make ten strategy please view the training webinar. Strategy cards are available below for download.
The doubles strategy involves breaking apart one number to make a double with the other number. For example 9+ 8 is the same as 8 + 8 plus 1 more. Using a twenty frame is an excellent tool. Strategy cards are available for download below.
The doubles strategy can be used with students who are struggling to master their basic facts. This strategy has a hand on component for the introduction.
For more materials for the doubles strategy please view the training webinar.
The splitting strategy combines a students' knowledge of place value with their addition skills. This is a great strategy to use before teaching the formal algorithm for addition and subtraction. The arrow cards needed for this strategy are available below. This strategy can be use for any tier of the RTI or MTSS framework. For more materials to practice the splitting strategy please view the training webinar.
The jumping strategy is strategy that can be practiced and mastered by using number lines as a teaching tool. Student must have a basic understanding of place value and split counting before they are ready for this strategy. For more materials to practice the jumping strategy please view the training webinar.
Splitting strategy is a great strategy to use to bridge to the formal algorithm for subtraction. Students can visually see how to ungroup a ten and shift it over a place value. Arrow cards are available for download below.
Jumping strategy for subtraction requires knowledge of place value and split counting. Number line is available for download below.
(Teacher Video) Instructional video for different methods and strategies for instruction of part / whole 5
(Student Video): The Part-whole relationship is the concept of how numbers can be broken into parts. Children who use this strategy will see the relationship between the whole number and the smaller parts that make the whole. This concept helps students understand the relationship between addition and subtraction. For more resources and strategies, please view the Primary Intervention Program Training.

Place Value: Split Counting by Hundreds, Tens, and Ones
This activity uses both base ten blocks and arrow cards to teach students how to split count by place value and then match what they counted to the proper digit placement. Arrow cards and base ten cutouts download is available below.
Immersion with Facts Program is a research based math intervention program for math facts. The program exposes students to multiple interventions for multiplication facts that guides students through a specific scaffolding of multiple representations to help the learner simultaneously develop an understanding of multiplication while still providing a rehearsal of facts. (works with most tablets or laptops)
(Adobe Reader required-) Adobe is a free download or ap depending on the device.
Research shows that students are more likely to become fluent with their facts when they are exposed a variety of multiplicative experiences that involve the application of the facts.
This is a great tier 1 or tier 2 intervention because it only need to be monitored by the teacher and is done only a few minutes per day. math intervention strategies
What differentiates Immersion with Facts from other math intervention strategies and programs is the focus is on using connections to conceptual understanding for building fluency and automaticity with facts.
Both the digital and hands on component provide the learner with an opportunity to both digitally and physically interact with the concepts and representations.
The strategies for multiplication facts include games and tasks in which students learn math facts at the same time as working on something they enjoy, rather than something they are forced to do. The different activities focus on the understanding of multiplication, rather than blind memorization and this is critically important,
The program accounts for four different levels of learner: These strategies can be used for any tier of RTI or MTSS.
Level 1: Understanding (Matching Facts to Visuals with Meaning). For students who are beginning to learn about multiplication. No prior knowledge.
Level 2: Learning (Sequence of Structured Visuals and Facts) - Most Students will start at level 2 if they are using this program.
Level 3: Developing Mastery (Sequence of Mixed Visuals and Facts). After a few days of level 2, move the learner to level 3 to increase the difficulty.
Level 4: Sustaining Mastery (Isolated Facts)
The level is assigned by the classroom teacher.
