This year both of my groups are Tier III. We will be working hard on picking up on some lost skills and we will be applying them. That is really huge for my students to actually apply what they are learning, not just learning it in isolation.
So I will hold them accountable for sight words that they should know- they will read stories with them and I will expect to see them written in their writing correctly. When we practice rhyming, I will be looking to see if the students can hear those sounds and then apply it to words when reading/writing: what word that you know does that sound like? use this word that you know how to spell to help you with this new word. It is a lot about the application process!
I will be using my iPads a lot in RtI. If you are using PowerPoints on iPads, be sure to check out my post from this summer. The SlideShark app will keep your PowerPoints formatted correctly and is a huge help. Click here to read that post.
