Response to Intervention, RTI, is mandated. Even when there is no support staff, we are required to show that we are targeting these students' specific deficits.

Maybe you can make your warm-up activity for the whole class be a multiplication facts competition/game. Students like this will need tangible rewards. If you can make praise for the "winners" public, all the better. A cheap way that works for intermediate students at our school is a VIP table. It's got some special pens and pencils, seat pillows, and other free or cheap things they get to use when sitting there.

Rick Morris has a great way to check multiplication facts. Here's the link: https://www.newmanagement.com/downlo...gle_tests.html

My final thought is that maybe your school needs a culture change. It seems strange that homework time is part of the regular school day. If your school wants to make sure that kids have no homework, have that conversation. If it's really an individual needs-based practice time, maybe it could be "rebranded."
