❤️ “I am a first year Resource teacher and this product has saved my life! I have seen so much growth in my student's math skills. With this product, I am able to teach the students what they would be learning in their gen ed math class, except this makes it much easier for them to understand! I like how there are lots of practice pages to reinforce skills. I assign some of those independent practice pages as "homework" or I use it as a warm up the following day before starting our next lesson. The bundle is great because I work with so many grade levels and groups." -Jessica R.
❤️ “This resource provides ample opportunity for scaffolded practice and review. It has helped so many of my students become and remain proficient in areas that they previously struggled in. Thank you!" -Paula F.
❤️ “I have used a number of the resources from this bundle and have found all of them to be well made. I am able to choose which lessons to use for each student based on their needs. I love how the lessons include a model section, guided and independent. This allows the student to build up confidence and then work on their own. This is the first resource I have found that is truly successful with all of my students in my 12:1:1 class of 2-5th graders. Thank you." -Kathleen F.
❤️ “These worksheets definitely break down skills and I LOVE the visual balance and organization of the work. My Deaf students (who can be very language deprived) really benefit from the clarity of the instruction!" -Danielle R T.
❤️ “This is my favorite resource I've ever purchased from TPT! The program I was using provided by the district took a long time to prep and didn't exactly fit my students' needs. With teaching grades K-5th special education and having all kinds of ability levels, this has been a lifesaver! I love that the I do, we do, you do is built in and it is very easy for all of my students to understand. It was a hard decision to spend that much on a TPT resource, but it's well worth it!" -Carla C.

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!

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.
✎ 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.
"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.

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!

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.

This is a great resource that saves planning time and addresses the needs of each of my students. I use this program with students from grades 3rd - 8th grade. Some of my students have learning disabilities, some are on the autism spectrum and some have Down Syndrome. This bundle gives me the flexibility to meet each of their unique learning needs.
Math to Mastery has been a great addition to my resource math classes. The material is easily downloaded. I have used it to help fill in the gaps for my students. Great resource!!!
My students and I are really enjoying the Special Education Math Curriculum | K-5 Bundle. We started with counting coins and my students love the practice. Thanks to this curriculum, they are becoming proficient at counting coins. We look forward to future lessons.
My school district purchased the K-5 Math Bundle for me and I began using it this fall. I love how repetitive the curriculum is! It's exactly what my special education students need. It is well organized and laid out in a way that is an easy resource for me to use!
