Reflection: Intervention and Extension The Arrays Olympics - Section 2: The Arrays Olympics (Guided/Independent Practice)


This lesson is designed so that students will get sustained practice on arrays and also so that I, as the teacher, will have some time to re-teach skills where necessary.  I start this process by looking at exit tickets and independent work and determining which students are struggling and which skills they are struggling with. I identify two groups of students (some students may be in more than one group). 

Group 1: Students who struggle to draw or build arrays. 

Group 2: Students who struggle to write equations for arrays. 

Once students have gotten settled doing the arrays Olympics, I pull my groups to the rug and work with them on these skills for about 10 minutes at a time.  This provides a crucial re-teach time for students and allows students extra practice.  

When I taught this lesson, the re-teaching was extremely impactful for students who were struggling since they got 10-15 uninterrupted minutes to practice the skills and get feedback.  The stations were useful for students who already grasped the material but needed additional practice.
