5 AND 1 INTERVENTIONS
This 5in1 Math Worksheet MicroSkill Differentiated Intervention Pack contains five scaffolded learning progression math worksheets for students with mild to moderate learning disabilities. These worksheets focus on multiplication array models with missing multiplicand, arrays models with a missing multiplier, array grids, number lines, and the foundations of multiplication (e.g., counting in groups).
Perfect for delivery by paraeducators, general education, and special education teachers requiring additional intervention materials targeting a specific skill within a learning progression.
IEP Goals  By (date), when given problems with numbers and counting up to 3, the student will learn to count to 3, improving counting and cardinality skills from 0/10 problems out of ten consecutive trials to 8/10 problems in ten consecutive trials.

LESSON INSTRUCTION
INTRODUCTION
 Display a ten frame model and ask students if they know what it is.
 Explain that a ten frame model helps us count and show numbers.
 Ask students to count the number of boxes in the ten frame model with you.
INSTRUCTION
 Use counting objects to demonstrate how to place them on the ten frame model.
 Ask students to count the number of objects on the ten frame model with you.
 Write the number on the whiteboard.
 Repeat with different numbers (up to 10).
GUIDED PRACTICE
 Give each student a ten frame model and counting objects.
 Ask students to fill their ten frame model with objects and count how many there are.
 Ask students to share their answer with a partner and explain how they counted.
INDEPENDENT PRACTICE
 Give each student a worksheet with ten frame models and objects.
 Instruct students to count the number of objects on each ten frame model and write the number in the box below.
 Monitor students' progress and provide support as needed.
HOMEWORK
 Assign students to practice counting to 10 using ten frame models and objects at home.
 Ask students to complete the homework sheet and discuss their understanding with parents.
EXIT TICKET
 Provide each student with a blank ten frame model and counting objects.
 Instruct students to fill their ten frame model with objects and write the number below.
 Collect the ten frame models to assess students' understanding.
ASSESSMENT
 Formative assessments will be conducted during the lesson to monitor students' understanding of counting to 10 using ten frame models.
 The exit ticket and progress monitoring assessments will be used to determine students' mastery of the objective.
CLOSURE
 Ask students to share one thing they learned about counting to 10 using ten frame models.
 Review the vocabulary words "count," "ten frame," and "objects."
 Encourage students to practice counting to 10 using ten frame models and objects at home.
EXTENSION
 Students can practice counting to 20 using two ten frame models.
 Students can use ten frame models to practice addition and subtraction within 10.
 Students can create their own ten frame models using materials such as playdough or beads.
INTERVENTION
 For students who struggle with counting, provide additional practice with counting objects and ten frame models.
 For students who need extra support, provide a visual aid or diagram to help them understand the concept of ten frames.
 For students who struggle with fine motor skills, provide larger and easier to grasp counting objects such as foam cubes or pompoms.
VIDEOS
No Video Available
TEACHING TIPS
 Use colorful objects and visual aids to keep students engaged.
 Encourage peer collaboration during guided practice for greater understanding.
 Provide additional support for students struggling with fine motor skills.
STUDENT MISCONCEPTIONS
 Students may confuse ten frame models with simple addition or subtraction.
 Some students may struggle with counting objects accurately on the ten frame.
