CLOSING THE DISTANCE
A review that actually reviews!
Looking for an intervention resource that has more substance than a collection of practice problems? Looking to have your students talk about the mathematics they know and that they need to remember? This resource is for you! Each of the ten 5 E sequences of activities is designed to get your students thinking and talking while self-assessing and reflecting on their understanding. Each 5 E sequence includes a preassessment and small-group intervention frameworks so that you and your students can gauge what mathematics needs a refresh.
Available in for grades 2–8 and Algebra I and in Spanish for grade 5, with grades 3 and 4 coming soon. English: $50 per grade level. / Spanish: $75 per grade level.
MATHEMATICS STAAR® WORKSTATIONS
A short playlist of activities to complement your workstations library.
Have you used and reused your workstations library of activities? With each volume, you can add eight sets of workstation activities to your library. Each volume is its own review playlist of mathematics TEKS that continue to present learning challenges. Each set of workstation activities includes a content review, a literacy component, and a sample test item at the rigor of STAAR®. Each workstation fits within a file folder and is designed so students can check their own work to monitor their understanding. Available in three distinct volumes for grades 3–8 and Algebra I, and in Spanish for grades 3–5. $35 per volume and grade level.
ACCELERATED INTERVENTION, ALGEBRA I
When time is short and needs are great, this resource provides focused acceleration of learning and relearning.
How do we reteach students who have already experienced all the interventions we have to offer? How do we focus learning on targeted areas of need when students have already received instruction? We take a deeper dive into the mathematics with a narrower focus. Each module in this series has three lessons that offer these deep dives. Each module also has a fourth lesson that brings understanding to the surface by connecting the mathematics learned and relearned in the first three lessons. Available in four modules. $25 per module.
- Module 1: Functions and Their Representations (Sample)
- Module 2: Describing Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential Functions (Sample)
- Module 3: Describing and Graphing Linear Functions and Equations (Sample)
- Module 4: Writing and Solving Equations and Inequalities (Sample)

STAAR® REVIEW TO GO
A set of student-centered, engaging, review activities. Just say “yes” to riveting, rigorous review! This is STAAR review in a nutshell – or in this case, a folder.
Saying “Yes!” means students will race to review because these activities involve engaging brain exercise, deep dive discussion, and hands-on hustle as students work to fine tune their knowledge and show off what they have learned. Stop using released items as content review. Each folder activity includes content review, a literacy component, and a sample test item at the rigor of STAAR. Folders are designed so students can check their own work to monitor their understanding. Volume 2 books consist of entirely different TEKS than Volume 1. Available for grades 4, 5, 8, and biology. Available in Spanish for grade 5. $75 per grade level. ORDER ONLINE | Download samples
STEMulating DESIGN CHALLENGES IN SCIENCE - NEW!
Incorporate Real-World Issues in the Science Classroom
STEMulating Design Challenges in Science is your guide to design challenges with background knowledge on the necessary skills and concepts needed to help students prepare for the future. This book covers the basic components of a STEM classroom along with how to implement the engineering design process to successfully complete design challenges. It also covers how to use an engineering notebook and provides teachers with facilitation questions and sentence stems to help support student growth and achievement.
Currently available for K-2 and Grades 3-5. Each grade band has four design challenges that
- are aligned to the TEKS,
- may include a budget component,
- include reproducible masters and sample rubrics, and
- encourage students to think about real-world issues.
SUPPORTING STAAR ACHIEVEMENT
Focused, foundational 5 E science lessons you can’t live without.
Do you need excellent examples of 5E science lessons but aren’t ready to commit to purchasing Gateways to Science? Do you or your students ever struggle with hard-to-teach and difficult-to-learn concepts? If so, we wrote these lessons for you! In fact, we wrote them for you even if that description doesn’t apply! The lessons in these books are totally separate and different from lessons in Gateways to Science. Make your and your students’ lives easier with this invaluable resource!
