About Me

My photo
I am a first grade teacher who has rediscovered a love for firsties this year. I have taught pre-k, kindergarten, first grade and even second over the past 16 years. I have been married for 17 years to my wonderful husband and have been blessed with 2 very active boys.

Intervention Groups

Intervention groups started last Monday with first grade.  The kids love switching classes for 30 minutes.  My little bunch of firsties are adorable.  I am working with the decoding group with CVC words.  We are using  Short Vowel Fun by Made in First Grade as well as lots of short vowel games by Doodlebugs Teaching along with our decodable readers. 

Today I ran across a post on Tales from Outside the Classroom.  Tessa shared an activity she used call Teaching Tiles Early Learning Reading Readiness Center by from Educational Insights.

The best news is that she is giving one away over on her blog!  Fingers crossed I win!  HA:) It is great for one on one with RTI, intervention groups, reading groups and as independent practice during centers. 
Another great giveaway I am sure you already know about is Make No Bones About It with Kelley at Teacher Idea Factory.  Halloween and fall units by super bloggers are up for grabs.  I already purchased Kelley's Good Morning Work for Reading and Language Arts-October.  The kids love it and I love the review it gives them. 
Lots of great resources out there.   I am just weeding through them to see what my little intervention group needs!  Have a great weekend:)
