RTI Ideas For Kindergarten
Happy to report that our power has been restored. We have tv and internet so everyone is happy.
Since our son is moving to Texas REAL soon, I have been cleaning out a lot of things in our house. Some of the things I came across were different things that we have done or ideas that I have collected for kindergarten RTI time. Sometimes we have used DIBELS scores and have grouped the kids according to their scores between the 3 kindergarten classrooms. We worked heavy on Dibels components during these group times.
Our reading teachers and special ed teachers are also a part of this team. At the beginning of the year, I would love to see our most at risk kids get pulled for RTI time every day to work on those beginning reading/writing skills. Most of these kids need intense name writing, name identification, and letter recognition/sounds. I think I like this this best at the beginning of the year because those kids need intense intervention to get on the right track. These kids typically are the same kids that I sent to reading intervention time, so they are getting double dipped which is what they need.
How does your classroom/school handle RTI? Would be interested in knowing what you do!!
