How I Use It
TTM is our main computer program that we use with all of our student populations. They would utilize this site 3 days a week for about 25 minutes during their computer lab period. The detailed reports allowed teachers to customize the learning therefore facilitating differentiation for all students' needs. During our test intervention preparation time, we were able to add a STAAR Review pathway in order for our students to prepare for the retest. The online help was one helpful resource that I know our students need more guidance in how to use it when needed.
I know that I am going to approach the use of TTM differently next year. This year, our district put the students on a 5th grade pathway, but I am going to customize it as well to fit my current lessons in the classroom. I will then be able to monitor each skill at least once a week for mastery. Then I will be able to reteach those skills in my small groups. TTM is an awesome resource, but I was not familiar enough with it to be able to utilize all of its components. Thank you for this great program which helps build our students' confidence in math!
