I teach special education students who range in reading levels from grade 2 - 5. Thanks so much for providing this resource. I will be using it!

I've seen your professional portfolio online. I'm doing my first here in Massachusetts. It is the first year the state is adopting this format for assessing teachers. Any chance you will be adding some ideas for us on teacher portfolios?
In our district we are implementing cross-grade grouping according to ability, differentiated differentiation if you will. This document is so handy for teachers intent on remediating very specific achievement gaps.
Awesome! You're welcome x 3! I'm curious, does your school use Dibels or Aimsweb to universally screen all students 3x/year in reading? And what is your school using for progress monitoring? Again, just wondering.
Good luck at your meeting.

Thank you so much for emailing me about this great resource!
As a teacher new to a grade level, these documents help me see what interventions will work best. I thoroughly recommend not only this document, but the others from the seller as well. You won't be disappointed! :)
Wow! These are fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing. This will be a great set of resources!

I absolutely love the forms you have developed for your school's RTI process. I've been looking for something to help keep data on monitoring students for sooo long. I will definitely use yours as a guide for creating some to fit my school. Thanks so much!
I want to thank you for posting your material here on this site. Although my three oldest children attended puiblic school, we decided to homeschool our youngest son. All four of my sons have been diagnosed special needs from ADHD to asperger syndrome and basically, I'm fed up with fighting the special ed department of the schools my sons have attended. After this last year when we had our son evaluated for a reading issue and he was diagnosed with dyslexia, we went to our local school to see if we could get some help of some sort. We were told all the federal funds the school gets is used to help students at the local catholic school and there are no funds available to assist homeschoolers in our district. I had only wanted to be able to ask for advice and suggestions from their reading resource teacher but was only given the use of the parent support center of the district instead. Since I have read IEPs for over 20 years and have a degree in social work, I understand what you have written and appreciate what you have put together so much! Thank you! I believe with the help of this resourse I may be finally able to really work with our son and his reading needs.
WOW!!!! WOW!!!!!! Thank you SO MUCH for this great freebie!!! I am always on the hunt for RTI resources. I know we have to do RTI, but they usually don't give us adequate resources! This will help my students & fellow teachers so much! Thank you!

I will need to go through these resources more, but what a great wealth of information here. You can tell that blood,sweat, and tears went into this!
WOW! Thank you for all this RtI info! My school district started RtI 2 years ago, but we've never been provided with the resources that are necessary. This pack will be incredibly helpful. Thank you!
You're welcome...I'm glad it's useful. This file is like my baby...blood, sweat and tears went into the creation of everything in here. RTI is not the heart and soul of our school, students are, but it's pretty darn close. :-)
Wow! That's fantastic. Now that our school year has started I will be starting to add meatier posts. I love knowing when others have changed their practice because of something I've written...I love making a difference, and I appreciate you letting me know! I'm sure you are an amazing teacher!

Amazing - thank you so much for sharing. So many excellent resources and ideas to help support RtI teams in my schools. You are providing invaluable help!
Well, like I said, our system is not perfect, but we are on a good path and have done great things with it so far. The best part is the teacher buy-in to providing classroom intervention. We trained teachers in it in baby steps and now they're running marathons!
I've only had a chance to skim through a few of the files, but I can already tell that this is going to be a great resource! Thank you SO much for your willingness to share these documents with other teachers! I very much appreciate the time you put into gathering these files to share with us. Thank you!!!
You are so welcome! Folks have been emailing for a few years about the documents we have created, and I have finally gotten my rear in gear to organize it in a presentable way in a user-friendly platform. Thanks for the feedback! :-)
