• Phonics and Fluency practice combined!
• Five *RAP pages – 4 pages of new words. The 5th page reviews all of the words.
• One page of Word Cards.
• Quick and easy practice sheets that anyone can do. No teaching experience necessary. This can easily be implemented by a parent, teacher, or aide.
• Great for Homework too.
• One-on-one, small group, or whole group.
• RAP stands for Repeated Accurate Practice. The concept is research-based and designed to help build or remediate basic reading skills. Accuracy is more important than speed.
• Differentiation. Use these to help struggling readers for quick easy practice at their level and/or targeting specific weaknesses.
• Includes a set with pictures for younger students and a set without pictures to use with older students so that they don’t look babyish.
Initially, each sheet should be read aloud. It is important to correct mistakes immediately.
*These are pages that I created based on the format of Take Flight RAP pages. These pages were created for students who need additional help with basic reading skills but may not be receiving instruction in Take Flight. I occasionally use them with my Take Flight students to target gaps or specific areas of weakness. Take Flight: A Comprehensive Intervention for Students with Dyslexia is a two-year curriculum written by the staff of the Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia and Learning Disorders at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
