I teach in a small school but there are many struggling readers in my tiny rural building. Over the years, I have found that many of my students have some kind of visual barrier that discourages them from wanting to learn to read. Knowing that motivation is half of the battle, I began to create my own interventions that would not only target areas of specific intervention but were motivating and fun for my students. After having much success with these activities, I wanted to share my work. My coworkers encouraged me to continue to network and create, which led to the beginning of my TpT journey.
