Zearn Math recommends students with significant areas of unfinished learning spend flexible math time or other specific intervention time working on earlier content that is directly tied to core grade-level learning. For each Mission of the curriculum, Zearn Math highlights Foundational Missions that point teachers to the specific earlier content areas where grade-level concepts are introduced and developed. Zearn Math does not offer a diagnostic test to identify specific intervention areas for students; rather, students should work on the Foundational Mission tied to their current grade-level work. For students with areas of unfinished learning from prior grades, Foundational Missions can provide essential bridges to the content students are learning during core instructional time.

Teachers can access information on Foundational Missions from each Mission page within their Zearn account, and direct students to navigate back to the appropriate Foundational Mission through student’s My Stuff page. As students work on Foundational Missions during flex time or intervention time, teachers or intervention specialists should continue to implement the Zearn Math model fully. This includes:

**Establishing Systems for Accessing Earlier Content**** **

Students working on Foundational Missions during flex time or intervention time will need additional guidance in order to navigate to and complete the appropriate Mission. When students login, they will be automatically directed to the grade-level lesson they are working on during core time; if teachers would like students to complete an additional Foundational Mission, they should direct students to:

- Click
*My Stuff*on the student homepage - Use the arrows to navigate to previous grades, Missions, and Lessons
- Click the badge of the first Lesson for the designated Foundational Mission

Since earlier content review is focused on building and deepening understanding of foundational concepts, students are only able to access guided practice activities, the Tower of Power, and Bonuses through their My Stuff page. All off grade-level content completed by students is reflected in the Progress Report, Pace Report, and Tower Alerts Report to provide teachers and intervention specialists visibility into what students are working on. For example, if students complete a lesson from a Foundational Mission, that completed work will appear in the Pace Report. If an asterisk appears next to a student’s name in the report, it signifies that student worked on an earlier lesson or bonus by navigating through their My Stuff page.

**Supporting Learning in Multiple Ways**** **

Zearn Math provides students with a mix of modalities, feedback, and support that is crucial to helping students build deep understanding. As students work on Foundational Missions, they should have opportunities to work independently on software-based lessons, model their math with concrete manipulatives, participate in math discussions, and receive direct feedback from their teacher. To demonstrate understanding and strengthen knowledge retention, students should also complete paper-and-pencil Student Notes and Exit Tickets for each lesson in a Foundational Mission. To access and print these paper-and-pencil materials, teachers should follow the steps below:

- Log in to Zearn teacher or administrator account
- Navigate to the Mission page for the Foundational Mission
- Click
*Student Notes*under Independent Digital Lessons or*Exit Tickets*under Small Group Lessons

**Ensuring Content Alignment between Core Instruction and Intervention Instruction**

Teachers can support students in accessing current and upcoming grade-level content by focusing student work on the relevant Foundational Mission. Teachers can access Foundational Missions after logging in to their teacher account and following the step-by-step instructions below. A full list is also found at the end of this article.

- Select Grades 1-5 at the top of your screen.
- Select a Grade and Mission.
- Once on the Mission page, you can click on any Foundational Missions to be brought directly to the corresponding Mission page.
