What’s on the intervention cart? Think about all of the things that you need on hand during any given lesson. Imagine needing all of those things in several different classrooms. Yep, my reality is that pushing into different classrooms means that at times I forget to bring something. My solution? Organize it and put it on a rolling cart! I received an email asking “What’s on the intervention cart” that I push around. So let’s take a look!
Here’s a look at how I roll! I know, be jealous! 🙂 Let’s start with the top and make our way down. At the very top, I have plastic drawer sets I pick up from Walmart. Here’s a little tip I learned this year. You can actually label the drawers with a chalk marker! Yes! I love it!
In the drawers I have my student workbooks sorted and stored for the groups that I work with. I am using a new intervention program this year for math called Focus Math. So far I love it!!! I also have a mini drawer set that holds earbuds, markers (Flairs and Scentos) and cap erasers.
Directly behind my drawer set is where my math manipulative are stored. Love this? Here’s a tutorial on how you can make this for yourself!
The second shelf is where I store my clipboards, paper, chart paper, supplies (stapler, glue, scissors, stamps, etc). I also have my pencil dispenser here as well.
My pencil dispenser is a straw holder that I repurposed. I just added a little vinyl to fancy it up a bit.
The last shelf is where I store my iPads, headphones, styluses, dry erase boards, markers, and additional resource books. You never know when you might need more practice on a particular skill so my books travel with me. I can quickly head over to a copy machine if needed without going back to my office.
There you go friends! That’s how I roll….quite literally! So tell me, what must have items have I forgotten? Comment below with your favs!
I absolutely love this. Fortunately I have my own classroom for students to come to me, BUT I think it would be easier for me to fit it all on a cart and come to some of the little ones because they take forever or sometimes forget to even come to my room. I know I have asked this before, but do you only do math interventions? If not, and you do reading as well, do you have the students individual books on the cart as well, or how do you manage the reading portion on the cart (because so many kids are on all different levels).
Where did you get these cute labels? Are they in your store?
One last quick question: is focus math expensive, and what reading intervention does your school use?
Hey Kelly! I am only serving math this year. Yes, reading would be a little more difficult with the different leveled passages and books. The labels are free in the post that is linked for the math manipulatives. Focus Math wasn’t terribly expensive. It is through the publishing company Pearson if you would like to take a look. We use Words Their Way and quick Reads as our primary reading interventions.
Hey Kelly! I am just serving math this year. Reading would be difficult to transport. Focus math isn’t too expensive. It is published by Pearson. We are currently using words their way and quick reads as our primary interventions for reading. We love them.
