Title I Math Focus?

I work with 3rd graders, pull-out. This year our school is in restructuring phase of NCLB- in reading. There is a large dedicated literacy block. Planning for TI math has been hard.

I can only see my students for 30 minutes, 3 days a week.
I'm wondering if I should just work on the skills being taught in each classroom at a given time instead of working on the more basic foundation skills which they need.

Your thoughts and advice please?

As always, thanks.

I'm a Title I reading specialist, and our math specialist hits on basic skills. Her philosophy is that if she can have them more fluent/proficient in the basics, the classroom math will be more doable.

This is the same principle applied in most Title I reading set ups. Build the basics that were not yet built, and the rest will come more easily. After all, why should I worry about supporting a child's weekly vocab/spelling in reading if he/she is in 2nd grade and has no idea what sound each letter makes?

Thanks, good advice, it all makes sense. Your reply gets printed out and taped near my desk at school- in a prominent place!
