Math Intervention Teacher
Welcome to Lamar Elementary School
My name is Laura Adkins and I have the amazing opportunity to help develop students' math skills and support teachers in their instruction. This will be my 9th year teaching in NBISD and my 16th year teaching overall. I have experience in 2nd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, and as a dyslexia specialist. I also have four wonderful daughters, Emily, Abigail, Kimberly, and Kalie. Please contact me if I can help you in any way.

Math Dictionary for Kids
A quick reference link is available; as well as free printables. Definitions and pictures are included to explain the terms. (If the link is not working, copy and paste it into the URL.)
BASIC MATH FACTS (+, - , x , ÷)
Choose the operation you want to practice and a level of difficulty (easy, medium, or hard), then try to BINGO!
This website has all sorts of games to practice basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts. (If the link is not working, copy and paste it into the URL.)
Clear It Multiplication
Students must find the multiplication fact on a board that matches a given number. Clear all the numbers off the board as fast as you can.
MODEL DRAWING, SINGAPORE MATH, PART PART WHOLE CHARTS
Video tutorials are available to help teach and model how to use the blocks to represent a word problem. Problems are available for students to practice on. This would be great to reinforce model drawing in class (whole group or small group) or to use at home.
ONE STOP SHOPPING FOR MATH SKILLS
Select a grade level then select “Number” to see a variety of math games.
Nothing but good old plain practice. Select a grade, then choose the skill you need.
Forget how to solve that type of problem? Khan Academy offers videos to teach you how to do it.

Mrs. Bevil's Symbaloo
Did you know that just by knowing your basic math facts you are freeing up brain space to solve harder problems? It's true, research shows that acquiring fluency and automaticity of basic math facts opens the door for complex and higher level thinking. Future success in math is dependent on knowing the basic math facts. You can help your child progress and learn faster by practicing at home. You can easily make flash cards with index cards. Here are my recommendations for what types of facts to focus on in each grade level:
1st grade- addition
2nd grade- addition and subtraction
3rd grade- multiplication
4th grade- multiplication and division
5th grade- multiplication and division
Xtramath.com is a free website to help kids practice. Your email is needed to sign up.
