Bridges Intervention Components
Each Bridges Intervention set includes an extensive collection of math-specific materials ideal for small-group instruction. Custom game pieces and carefully selected manipulatives make learning fun and interesting.
Games & Activities
Bridges Intervention works with students’ aptitude to learn through play, an approach that is important for all math learners, particularly during intervention. Games and activities consolidate and extend their comprehension of key skills and concepts. The Bridges Intervention set features colorful premade components including card decks, spinners and game boards that support each volume.
Concrete representations of shapes and visual models provide tools for individual and small-group inquiry. Each Bridges Intervention set includes manipulatives to support up to six students per volume.
Bridges Intervention also incorporates our collection of free virtual manipulatives.
Printed Teachers Guides are designed for classroom use. The versatile three-ring-binder format allows teachers to add notes and other reference materials. All guides are also available in electronic form on the Bridges Educator Site.
Content for Bridges Intervention is divided into nine volumes. Each begins with an introduction to the core mathematical content and includes helpful charts for teacher planning.
Each volume contains 8 to 13 modules that together constitute a coherent sequence of instruction on specific domains.
Each module contains five sessions, for a total of 40 to 65 sessions per volume. The first four sessions feature warm-ups, a game or activity and a guided practice page. Every fifth session is devoted to quick assessments designed to monitor students’ progress. Each session is intended to last about 30 minutes.
