Thanks Amanda! "Bless them" is right. Research has proven the earlier the interventions can start, the better. RTI is not my favorite form of the referral process but it is what we are being told to do until they change it again I guess. We are definitely planning to continue our small group work and share our findings with our team and administration. We did see a slight drop in the scores for our most at-risk students on the QIWK spelling post assessment. We think a few of our students might have guessed correctly on the pretest. Also we realize that even though we saw great gains during group time and with letter id, applying their new sound knowledge as required in the QIWK, is an application on a deeper level of those sounds than they are ready for now. They are just now beginning to grasp beginning sounds and still struggle to match them to the correct letter, ending sounds will come next and them medial vowels.
