I created this digital toolkit to supplement any research based Reading curriculum to target skills based on the need of the student. These lessons can be used in whole group, small group, independent or individual. The goal is to provide many opportunities for students to practice and review difficult skills in order to master them and move on.
The use of digital resources is huge as it provides students opportunity to practice these skills and can free up teacher time to work with a small group or 1:1. I created it to be flexible. It can fit in as a supplement to work in different class settings.
The theme I chose for this bundle is “Toolbox” because that is essentially what we are doing when we learn to read. We are filling our toolbox with skills and strategies for decoding, blending, chunking, and so on. I like the idea of students “hammering” out the sounds because it blends nicely with tapping on their fingers, which we also do. The “hammering” motion along with the visual in the Decoding mini-lesson(PPT) provides another learning opportunity to engage, engrain and master this skill.
Struggling readers and at-risk students need support with orally sounding out words where they transition to automatically read words without sounding them out. This bundle is designed to provide extra support with decoding and blending short vowels for beginning readers as well as struggling readers.
Although...it's not all paperless.
I have provided a quick assessment to help with targeting instruction and RTI. This assessment can be used to accompany any required short cycle or benchmark assessment that may be required. Along with that, I have included printable materials to create a "student toolbox" to organize tracking forms and student "tools" they will use along with these resources. I've also included printable materials that can be used for a bulletin board or teacher binder. There is also a worksheet that goes with the "Build It Quick Game"
