Second Grade Intervention Curriculum

2nd Grade Intervention Curriculum is a very versatile intervention curriculum created by a teacher for teachers! The program is versatile for implementation and varying student levels. You can find success in using this program in your intervention groups, RTI groups, guided reading, whole-group phonics, or as a resource for non certified staff members assisting in the classroom. The program is based upon a slotted thirty minutes of instruction. However, this too is versatile as you can limit or extend this time frame to best fit your classroom needs.

2nd Grade Intervention Curriculum is broken down into four major areas; word building, word writing, reading fluency, and sight word fluency. For word building all students participating in the program will need access to magnetic letters. You can find those online and in teacher resources stores. Students will also need a magnetic surface like a whiteboard or magnetic cookie sheet. Teachers have also had success using magnet apps on tablets and iPads. For word and sentence writing students will need their own writing journal which has been included within the unit. Reading fluency will be accomplished through the included interactive whiteboard sentence files and/or through the blackline sentences. Lastly, sight word fluency will be conducted during transitional periods of your lesson using the included fluency cards.

Keep in mind that all lessons can be adjusted to fit your needs. However, a sample whole-group 2nd Grade Intervention lesson could look like this: students meet at the carpet, students retrieve their letter boards, teacher gives students the first word to build, students build word, students verify their words by viewing the teachers interactive letter board {included in the unit}, students clear their board, students build and check remaining words, students place their boards away and retrieve their journals, teacher prompts students to write each word into their journal, students do so then verify the accuracy of the word by using the teacher’s interactive journal, students write and check sentence, students place journals away and sit at carpet, students read interactive fluency sentences, students read fluency cards, teacher wraps up lesson. Please note at anytime you can choose to repeat a week multiple times until your students mastered the skills.

If using this program as a whole-group intervention you can look into splitting up your grade level students into different groups based upon their current level. All students should progress through the program from start to finish without skipping any levels. This will guarantee that students are confident in the skill. All students will take assessments to progress to the next level. If students are not ready to progress then the teacher can use the editable plans to add additional words for that skill. If the students are succeeding at an abnormal rate then the teacher can speed up the lesson. However, it should be noted that the highest success comes from using the program with fidelity and not skipping any steps unless necessary for time constraints.
