Small Group Interventions (Pull Outs)

Monday, October 9, 2017
Part of my new job description includes pulling out students for small group interventions. At the beginning of the year, I was given a list of students who received interventions in middle school and needed extra assistance. I created the Progress Monitoring Form below in order to manage student data and used these forms to identify their testing scores for the previous two years.

I made it a point to get to know these kids during the fall semester so that I will be more successful reaching them during the pull out sessions in the spring semester. I am also analyzing each student's learning standard breakdown on each test to figure out how I am going to group students based on their challenges/strengths.

During the small group pull-outs, I am planning to create a cummulative folder of review material that they can access and practice. Of course, we are going to do more application based problems during these sessions but many of these students are lacking the skills needed to reach that higher level. Here is a sneak peek... 

I'm just not sure if I like it... I guess we will see once spring semester rolls around and I am pulling out these students! How does your school complete pull-out sessions with struggling students?


  1. I love this! I never taught drawing the lines between terms...thank you for the idea. With distributing the 3 in the distributive page, would you say distribute the -3 or change the signs after distributing? Just wondering.

    1. I would normally say distribute the -3. I had to go back and fix it to have the circle reach that -. :)

  2. I love this! I will be teaching an intervention class and can't wait to see how this review packet turns out... loving the way you have it set up! My students need the step by step so they can work independently - wonderful idea!
    Thanks for sharing!!

  3. I would love to know how your pull-out sessions and using your booklet went. Are you planning to make it available anywhere?

  4. Is this intervention booklet available anywhere as download or purchase??

  5. This looks awesome! I am wondering the same thing as this review booklet available anywhere? I am needing something very similar for my STAAR review kiddos!
