Shelfies, QR Codes & RtI

Favorite books from the Shelf and QR Codes

We just finished up with Parent/Teacher Conferences at our school.  Our halls were all decked out and looking great with student work.  When this time of year comes around, I am look for something that will work for all my students across the grades.  I found a couple of ideas and meshed them together:  Shelfies and QR Codes!

Favorite books from the Shelf and QR Codes

Each student chose one of their favorite books off the "shelf" and I took their pictures.  Only their eyes and up showed above the book.  Then, I used a free QR Code maker on my iPad to make the codes.  I displayed the directions for parents about downloading the app and scanning the code to find their child's picture.  

Favorite books from the Shelf and QR Codes

The kids were so excited to see their pictures and for their parents to try to find which one was them!  In the directions that I posted with the display, I suggested to the parents to talk with their child about their favorite book.

Part of this idea came from Colleen over at Literacy Loving Gals.  You can check out her post by clicking on her button above.  She has some great ideas!

RTI Reading Interventions plans and resources

We only have a few weeks left of this first cycle of tier II in RtI.  I cannot believe how fast it has gone.  Students are showing lots of progress and moving on to new skills.  This cycle has been a bit difficult to manage since most of my students this time have been on different interventions.  That can definitely test your management skills!  It is so rewarding to see your struggling students make progress and feel good about themselves when they realize they mastered a skill and are moving on to something new!

Be sure to link up your plans too!


I have a question for you about the RtI visual plans.  Teachers email and message me about the templates that I use and if they are available in my TpT store.  I would love to hear from you what you would like or what you would need in a template for RtI plans that would make things easier for you to plan RTI.  Please take a moment and let me know what you would like to see.  Thank you so much for that!!

  1. I love what you did with the shelfies. They are adorable. I have to admit, I don't know much about QR codes, since I don't have a fancy phone.

  3. Hey Lori!! Love the visual plans you provide!! Quick question---what do your 4th and 5th grade teachers use for comprehension resources for tiejr 2? My school is currently struggling with what diagnostic/data to use to group tier 2 students... ...we have the DRA but it just takes SO LONG!! Any help would be awesome!

    1. Once students pass DRA level 38, we move them into the IRI. It focuses more on comprehension than on fluency like the DRA does. Hope that helps!

  5. Where did the qr codes link to in order to see their child's photo?

    1. Ashley, the parents could scan the code on their phone and then the child's name would pop up on their phone so they would know who they were looking at and who liked that book. Hope that helps!
