Looking for intervention activities for K-1? I've got you covered!


  1. I can't wait for your RTI Phonemic Awareness. I teach at an at risk first grade class. Your RTI for Kindergarten looks AMAZING! Your little guy is too cute!

  2. Hi Abby!
    You are very busy! Thanks for sharing the RTI format. We are in the mist of everything and it can be overwhelming! Anyway, I have used the RTI-letter recignition you have an dam going to purchase the sound one! These are great to use insmall group.
    The emergent reader you have pictured for the letter o- what company and are the books for all letters of the alphabet?
    Thanks so much for your expertise!

  3. Ummm, of course you rocked your evaluation!
    I *loved* reading your detailed post and can't wait to incorporate some of your awesome ideas in my kdg classroom! Kindergarten kiddos need so much exposure to letters and sounds in a variety of ways and I love the way you accomplish this in a purposeful and fun way!
    Keep sharing:)

  4. This is an amazing post! Thank you! We use a program called FUNdations during our RTI time, but these strategies will be great when I am working with my lower reading groups during guided reading!

  5. Thanks so much for all of your ideas!! I use your highlight a letter pages with 2 of my struggling 1st graders who didn't go to kinder! I'm so excited to see your 1st grade RTI plans- you're the best!! ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. Thanks for your schedule. As a Title I teacher for Kdg, I am always curious about how others schedule their time. I have 25 min, but with transition times and sometimes teachers aren't ready for their kids to leave class, I only get 20 min with them. I use the Wilson Fundations to review letters and sounds and go in the order that our K teachers use. I also have to do sight words, but I'm behind the classes. Do you keep up with what they are working on in class? Seems like I never have enough time, but I do pack in a lot!

  7. Thanks for the freebie! I bought your Kinder RTI letter recognition and identification pack. My husband laughed because I ran out of ink printing.. I immediately texted him to tell him about this emergency situation.. So, needless to say– he ordered me more ink! haha

  8. wow I am so impressed with your post, you have some really good ideas. I particularly like the witch finger, I think that would really appeal to kids when reading.

  9. Wow, you sure do cram a lot into that 30 minutes! I can see why you rocked you eval!

    Our school has never introduced the alphabet sounds in order as some are too close either in sound or visual appearance which can lead to some confusion for the kiddos. I can't wait to read about the order you are starting to introduce them in.

  10. I have so many of your products and LOVE them!!! Thanks so much for sharing! Where did you get your mini-books? I have been looking for something exactly like them and haven't seen anything until now.

  11. Thank you so much for this post!! My colleagues and I have been doing a lot of research on RTI lately and focussing on what to do to help our Tier 2 and Tier 3 students. I recently posted about RTI on my blog and wanted a list of resources for others, can I put a link to your blog so others can see these great ideas? This information was very helpful!

  12. Glad you and your kiddos like the Alpha Heroes!!! I have the baby soda bottles too! Love them!!! You structure your intervention very similar to the way I do it! Great minds ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I'm a special ed teacher, but I think my district wants me to move toward an intervention model more like what most Title teachers are doing. So it was interesting to see your lesson plan.

    How do you get students to your room quickly to allow a whole 30 minutes with them?

    Can't wait to see more of your lessons!

    We are ALL Special!

  14. Abby, I am a long time reader and I comment every once in a while but not often. However, I just had to comment today.

    I am an ELL teacher and have both your RTI packs. I LOVE them and so do my kids! I am so glad you broke down your lessons for us all to see. It is so helpful to see how others structure their lessons.

    Anyway, I just wanted to share how grateful I am. and know that I share all your RTI posts with the teachers I work with. ๐Ÿ™‚

    BTW, if you ever want to collaborate and work on a lesson plan template that would be name after you, just drop me a line. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. Thank you Abby for your insight! I have one 30 minute RTI group of about 20 first graders (first year at doing this job, so I'm just "winging" it right now)…I am looking forward to your first grade RTI packet!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. This is awesome. I am excited about the first grade version!

    Why aren't you able to take pictures at school anymore? That is sad. ๐Ÿ™ Good thing Becks is such a good model!

  17. Abby I loveee your lesson and going to buy both packets! Quick Question though where did you get those fabric tactile letters? I would loveee to buy some. Is that a mini binder also?

  18. Just had to reread this post, I love your ideas! I must know where you got the letter books. Our reading series does not have anything like that, just sight word books. And, I need some of those tactile letters! Too cute! Would love to see what you do the rest of the week with the kinders and also what you do for math.

  19. Did you purchase your objects for the sound bottles or did you just use little toys and things that you had? If you did purchase items, please let us know where you can find these skinny items. ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Just started my own blog and put a link into your site. Would love you to check it out and let me know what you think and maybe follow me!

  21. I'm a special education teacher, I mostly cover 5th grade, but I travel to a smaller school once a week and cover K-4. Love all of your RTI packs. As my district is in the middle of MTSS (Kansas always has to have different acronyms for the same things) and having so many kiddos on different levels, it's great to find so many useable, kid-friendly products. Keep up the great work, I can't wait to read about all of the tremendous progress your kiddos make by the end of the year!

  22. Abby, I have recently purchased all three of your RTI packets and love what I see. I am wondering do you just put them into page protectors and then into a three ring binder? I wanted to do 5 binders of each of your 3 packets but it is getting expensive buying all the page protectors and its a lot of copies. Any suggestions?.. or should I just bite the bullet?

  23. Do you happen to have a list of the items you put in your sound bottles for each letter? I just purchased them and want to start shopping so I am set to fill them when they arrive. I love this idea and have also purchased your work on TPT. Thank you!!
