You are right!

I am in total agreement with you. Introducing longvowels/silent-e before kids have mastered CVC words will only lead to major confusion. It's a big transition for even our non-sped kids in first...

I totally get it!

One year, I had a very weird lunch, recess, and specials schedule plus kids were pulled for sped, speech, ELL, OT, and Title I at very random times it seemed. I never had all my kids in the room for...

Some thoughts

Since your experience is with 6th grade, I would spend a good deal of time brushing up on K-2 phonics skills, which will likely be a huge part of primary RTI.

I would most definitely be upset about this, especially the car ride. No matter how innocent the events were, an SRO should certainly know better than to put himself in that situation. I hope his...

Not sure how long your intervention time is... let's say 45 mins. Take the intervention group for 30m and then another group (rotated daily) for 15m. That way the IG kids aren't feeling left out...

It's a tough choice between A and C, but I'm going with A. It is just so incredible how entitled these people are. They think you are just a concierge in their game of life.
