Before I jump into the specifics of my [Reading Intervention Binder], I’d like to share a bit of background on how intervention is done in my classroom.
our classroom. Each day (Monday-Thursday) we are fortunate enough to
have an Intervention Team (I-team) visit for a 50 minute block. The
block is divided into two 25-minute portions. During this time, the
Tier 3 kiddos work with an I-team teacher, while Tier 2 kiddos work with
me. I do one rotation of literacy, then one rotation of mathematics.
While all of this is happening, Tier 1 kiddos work on various activities
(AKA centers) such as iPad apps, math/literacy centers, read to self,
etc (similar to Daily 5 without the mini-lessons).
classroom. I use this time to meet with some of my Tier 1 kiddos to
make sure that they are getting the necessary extensions that they need
to keep advancing. This is also the day that my Tier 2 & 3 kiddos
get to independently work during I-time through centers activities practicing the
skills that we have been focused on throughout the week.
activities to target all of the MANY, MANY skills that we should be
covering during intervention??? I know that I don’t! Time with kiddos
during intervention is so precious that I need to be prepared, ready to
go, and in a hurry!
page protector so that the kiddos can write on them in dry erase
marker, then erase them for next time! Hello time saver! However, you
could make class sets of specific pages to use as an independent
practice, homework, centers activity, etc. It truly is a versatile
different pages or skills at the same time because they are all
organized in one place! Let’s face it… just because you have 3 kiddos
in an intervention group DOES NOT mean that they all 3 need to work on the
exact same skills. But, how can you manage having three 5-year olds
work on different skills at the same time?? When it’s as a simple as
pulling out one page that targets each kiddos needs, it starts to become
a lot easier to target those areas of need!
