Teacher Feedback:

❤️ “I'm so grateful for this resource. I am able to use this with my IEP students to work at their own level. It is simple enough for my paras to assist, yet in-depth enough to take them up a level." -Amber S.


❤️ “This has been such a great resource! I have tried other math programs that were either too advanced or moved too slowly. This is perfect for the pace and level my students are at. I have seen great improvement from past years." -Sarah A.


❤️ “This is by far one of the best purchases I've made on TPT! This is so systematic and helpful for teaching my struggling students, it is so organized and makes my life so easy to plan for small groups." -Ashleigh C.


❤️ So beneficial for my struggling math students. I have a student teacher this year and our district math program is so huge and cumbersome, but having this as a guide for her to take a small group and work with them is awesome! I like that the directions are right on the page, and that the activities are repetitive for some things, so they know what to expect." -Kate A.


❤️ “This has worked out great for my 5th grader that is behind in multiplication and division." -Trisha L.


❤️ “This was a great place to start the school year off with my students with learning disabilities. It was great for quick review of skills students learned in the past to refresh their minds after returning to school since 3rd grade. Thank you! This made planning and implementing so much easier!" -Samantha P.


❤️ “My students really enjoy this math. It is easier for them to understand than the curriculum the school is using. They need something very clear and straightforward and this is IT!" -Tracey M.


❤️ “This is perfect for my 4th grade resource students. The worksheets are clear and direct, and they provide ample practice on one skill before moving on to a more difficult task. Definitely recommend!" -Elissa R.


❤️ “These workbooks make learning accessible to my students! I have purchased so many of her workbooks and I love every one of them!" -Fish Climbing Trees


❤️ “This was great for my special ed students. I could choose just a few pages for my faster students and then have them move to the next skill. For my slower students, there were many pages for the extra practice they needed." -Anne R.


❤️ “These units do a great job breaking down the skills and providing the necessary practice." -Trisha L.


❤️ “Amazing resource! Love how everything is so organized and clear for students!" -Nina H.


❤️ “I have grades 2-4 in this resource and they are all so worth every penny! Thanks so much!" -Bonnie M.


❤️ “I have used this entire series for all my grade levels. It is very easy for them to understand and they have said it is much clearer for them then what they were using in class!" -Tracey M.


❤️ “This broke things down and really helped my students learn about fractions. I have used other products from this source and I love them all. This is much clearer and provides more practice than our curriculum. I would buy any and all of her resources." -Jill S.

About the Author

Hi! I am a Special Education & Title 1 teacher interested in task analysis. My resources break tasks into small and explicit steps, reducing cognitive load for learners so they can feel successful and confident rather than overwhelmed and reluctant to try. I also strive to lighten the workload of teachers by making resources as practical and easy-to-use as possible. I sincerely hope my work can benefit you and your students.

I appreciate your support and feedback!

Who Can Benefit From These Math Lessons?

These math resources have been used in special education and intervention settings at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels. They've been used by homeschooling families, math tutors, and Title 1 and ELL teachers.

These step-by-step lessons could benefit all students, especially students who have:

• Attention difficulties—minimal visual clutter, short lessons, simple instructions, clear stopping point

• Learning disabilities—objectives are carefully sequenced in small chunks with explicit step-by-step instruction and many practice repetitions

• Slower processing speed—accuracy is emphasized rather than speed; mastering a skill will increase automaticity

• Language difficulties—Receptive Language: Teacher directions and vocabulary are simple, consistent, and concise. Expressive Language: Rather than asking students with limited verbal skills to ‘explain their thinking’, teach them how to state the steps they are following.

• Executive functioning difficulties—clear expectations and predictable routine, organized and straightforward layout

• Fine motor issues—larger font and space for writing answers; students are not asked to write many words or sentences.

What is a "Lesson Workbook"?

✎ Each lesson is presented in model, guided practice, independent practice format.

There are no separate lesson plans or teacher manuals, everything is included in a simple workbook. Written step-by-step instructions help the teacher be clear and consistent during modeling and guided practice. The written steps can be used to help you “think out loud” while you demonstrate. Independent practice problems give students a chance to master each “chunk” before moving on to the next lesson.

✎ Step-by-step task analysis is included next to each model.

Teachers may give a student’s workbook to a paraeducator or parent without needing to explain how to teach each skill. All they need to do is follow the step-by-step models and gradually fade prompts during guided practice. Once teachers are familiar with the format, they can make adjustments to fit the pacing and number of practice repetitions each student needs.

✎ Easy to use. Print and teach.

Save hundreds of hours of planning and preparation time. I suggest printing the cover on card stock and the remaining workbook pages double-sided. Bind the workbook together using what you have (staple, spiral binding, three-hole-punched in a binder, or with binder rings). The method I used was a double-hole-punch at the top, fastening booklets together with two 1” binder rings. I chose this method because I didn’t want anything on the sides of the pages to interfere with handwriting. After outlining what I planned to teach during the coming month, I would spend a couple hours of my prep time printing and assembling workbooks. After that, math time was nearly prep-free until we came to the end of the workbook and began the process again.

Student Progress

"Angela's math resources are perfect for my multi-level special education class. They provide straight-forward simple directions and visually UNcluttered pages. Our regular education math curriculum is confusing and visually overstimulating. My students have made great progress using your math units! Thank you!!! I wish there were a higher rating." --Amy C.

"I am using several of these units with a couple of students who experienced prenatal alcohol and drug exposure . . . I have seen the students I purchased this for go from being completely overwhelmed and shut down in math to being excited to show me their progress each day. I cannot recommend these highly enough!" --Melissa H.

"My 4th and 5th grader students with learning disabilities are finally feeling successful in math! Your math interventions have been a lifesaver for my students, their gen ed teachers, and me! No more spending hours trying to find work that meets their needs and aligns to what is happening in the classroom."--Kimberly D.

"I love the approach and routine to your math units and the multiplication was no exception! Students with Intellectual Disability were multiplying with pride and parents were very tickled! Great evidenced-based structure." --Melissa G.

"Simple steps and explanations helped my ELL students tremendously. Thank you." --L. G.

"I used this resource to teach a child from Somalia how to regroup with subtraction. The explicit instruction was instrumental in helping the child conceptualize regrouping. I also appreciate the numerous sheets available for additional practice. Thank you!" --Baudelina A.

"This has been AMAZING for my learning support 2nd graders!!! They're finally feeling success!!" --Laurie M.

"This is amazing. I'm using it with a 6th grade tutoring student who has autism. He is making great progress already!" --Kimberly F.

"We have struggled a lot getting my 4th grader with autism to understand multiplication. With this bundle it's been a breeze. The large font and small amounts of problems on each page have prevented him from being overwhelmed... I'm really thankful to this bundle and can't wait to get more." --Viola P.

"I wish that there was an A+ option for how amazing this resource is! ... My intervention students have blossomed with using this resource. It is extremely thorough and guides the students through scaffolded steps to achieve competency. Couldn't ask for a better resource!" --Lindsey D.

Each workbook can be used individually as a stand-alone intervention for that skill or they can be used together, taking students from the basics of addition and place value in first grade all the way to dividing fractions in fifth grade.

These materials can also be used with older students to help fill the gaps in their learning. No grade levels are printed on workbook pages.

Who Created These Materials?

Hi! I’m a Special Education (K-12 Mild/Moderate) and Title 1 (Intervention) teacher with 12 years of experience teaching in elementary schools in Wyoming and Idaho.

I’ve taught at data-driven schools with high expectations for achievement. It was a leap of faith for me to abandon the district-purchased math curriculum that was not working for my students and create my own lessons based on what I had learned in my college courses. It paid off, though, as my students started to like math and became confident and willing to do more and more.

My students on IEPs consistently performed well on the standardized math tests with scores comparable to their non-IEP peers. My wonderful paraeducator enjoyed teaching with these workbooks because of the organization, clarity, and predictable routine.

I am happy for the opportunity to share my work with you. I sincerely hope these resources will benefit you and your students.

I love to hear about your experiences teaching with these resources. Please feel free to email me or write a review below!

Digital Learning & Learning at Home

For students who struggle with math, I recommend teaching new material using paper and pencil rather than a screen if possible. Print a workbook (or a portion of a workbook) for each student to work on at home. These workbooks are step-by-step and easy for parents to use with their children. No teacher manual or scripted lesson plan is needed (also, no logins or software to worry about).

Digital, paperless resources can be helpful when reviewing and practicing previously learned skills. You can find my digital resources HERE on TPT.
