RTI: Phonemic Awareness

I have a couple of littles that are struggling so much with phonemic awareness...they're just not used to playing with sounds, they're unaware that sounds can be manipulated..sometimes it seems like they can't hear the beginning sound..sometimes it's the ending..and don't get me started with rhyming! Ohgoodnessme..rhyming is soooo hard for one little in particular.

A while back I voiced some concern over this itsy bitsy problem..and lo and behold sweet Amanda Richardson from Mrs. Richardson's Class..came to the rescue and sent me the most amazing packet to help out my littles...isn't that sweet?! Here it is organized in my pretty pink little that's struggling with rhyming is loving the activities...I like this packet so much that I decided to give Amanda a shout out!

Take a look at all the things she has included:

This wonderful tool is meant to help the classroom teacher easily organize their intervention activities and data keeping. Amanda has included a variety of interventions, assessments, and data sheets to keep you organized. I personally used the assessment provided as a pre-assessment..I documented where my littles are at this time..I've been providing interventions based on their needs and then will reassess in two weeks. I'm hoping that these interventions will far they're loving the little songs and the fun activities. I {puffy} heart that all of the data sheets are'all combined together in one little package..and as a
Texas teacher I'm lovin' that the activities are aligned with the TEKS..score!

The pictures above show you just the rhyming area in my binder...I keep all intervention activities in sheet protectors or in the small brown envelopes for easy handling. The following list is what's included in the rest of the packet.

Phonemic Areas Addressed:
Syllable Segmentation
Beginning Sounds
Ending Sounds
Medial Sounds
Blending Onset-Rime
Phoneme Blending
Deleting Phonemes
Segmenting Phonemes

Included are:
21 intervention activities (3 for each area addressed)
9 easy data recording sheets (1 for each area addressed)
9 assessments (1 for each area addressed)
9 explanation pages (1 for each area addressed)

Amanda is so sweet..she is giving the complete First Grade RTI: Phonemic Awareness packet  to one of you!

I just got some fonts from Amanda! Love them! I'm so excited to see she sells a phonemic awareness pack. I'm sure it's fabulous! :) I have a little one that just now started being able to blend sounds together to sound out 3 letter words. COMPLETE lack of phonemic awareness! It's been a struggle but he is such a fantastic kiddo and I'm so proud of him! It's so great to make that breakthrough. Phonemic awareness is such an important skill that sometimes is overlooked. So glad you're giving it some extra attention! :) Good luck with your kiddo who can't rhyme. That's tough!! If anyone can do it, you can!

I love the binder you use to organize all of the RTI "stuff"! All of that stuff can be very overwhelming and hard to organize. In my perfect world I would be this organized. (soon I hope soon)
