I haven't had time to sit down and read the books I brought home because we have just been ripping and running and hosting and ... I wanted to highlight a book that I have had the chance to read bits and pieces of as I have needed it throughout the year. It has become somewhat of a lifesaver for me! I have really enjoyed using 40 Reading Intervention Strategies for K-6 Students: Research-Based Support for RTI.
The interventions are super easy to follow too. Each intervention chapter gives some great information about the intervention. Then a super easy to follow lesson plan is given to help even novice teachers have success. When I worked with a group in our last meeting to peruse the book, we worked on "Reading a Lot", something I had not thought of as needing a strategy. The lessons were simple and straightforward for helping students want to ready more and more often.
So, if you need some easy intervention strategies, this book is perfect! It is my new go-to book when I need something different to help my struggling readers!
