Intervention FUN!

Hello Everyone!
   In case you missed the post on The Teaching Tribune, I'd like to share something I did for my RTI kids. If you would like even more amazing tips and information about intervention, be sure to check out the other posts on The Teaching Tribune.
   I was working as a Reading Intervention Specialist with K-2. The first and second graders had to pass a sight word test for promotion standards. We were using Guided Reading and Running Records but had to step it up to get these kiddos to be able to read a minimum of 75 out of 125 words. Flash cards and regular intervention methods were not working fast enough. What was something unique I could do?
   Well, we began to sing...write...sing...write...you get the picture. It was so cute when the kids would break into a song when trying to remember a word. Their classroom teachers wanted to know what in the world was going on!
   Take a look at this video. Notice how one of the students misspelled the word but still sang it correctly! Too cute.

Moral to this story........100% of the kids in intervention passed the sight word test!! Grab your freebie for some of these songs. Enjoy and help those sweeties sing their way to success the FUN way!
