Activity Files for RtI

Reading activities in a file for RtI intervention

Our first cycle of RtI (Response to Intervention) is about to get into full swing. I have posted about our RtI process before.  If you would like to read them or need ideas on how to implement RtI click  for Tier I, Tiers II and III and RtI Decision Meetings to read them.  I have been busy preparing graphs, parent letters, activity files, and weekly progress monitoring files.  That takes me a tremendous amount of time to get all of that organized for all my tier II and tier III teachers.

When I give my teachers their files containing what they need weekly for each student, they then start planning activities for the interventions these students need to progress.  

A great place to go to find activities for interventions is the Florida Center for Reading Research.  They have many activities and are grouped by grade and intervention needed.

I have copied the activities, labeled and filed them, and placed them into grade level boxes.  I have one for K-1. 2-3, and 4-5.

Now when my teachers get their files on who they will be doing interventions with they can come get the grade appropriate box and find activities to do with their students.  One thing I have struggled with with RtI is having time with each teacher who is teaching tier II and tier III to show them what activities to do and to teach them how to do some of the activities.  As with all teachers, I just do not have enough time in the day to accomplish everything that needs to be done.  This website is helping me with this.

This is one of the phonological awareness activities in the K-1 file.  It is just one of many phonemic awareness activities.  FCRR provides the activity, directions, and all the pictures, graphs, game boards, etc... needed to do that activity.  

My teachers are excited about these little black boxes!  They are hoping for a little less time spent in prep for these interventions.  I am excited too.  My teachers will have the resources that they need to better meet the needs of their students and not have to spend so much time searching for them!


  1. FCRR has great resources. We also use them in intervention groups as well as RTI. We are spoiled as our literacy coach has made many of the activities, laminates and stores them in manilla folders and hands us the ready made activities to use for RTI!
