Clip to ScrapBook #4

I always pretest to using 3 things: an assessment to find the independent and instructional reading level, a list of nonphonetic sight words, and cards containing phonics elements (letters and letter combinations). For the sight words and phonics, I simply count up how many the child knew, use the lists as well as my observations of his oral reading to plan lessons, and reassess every month or two to provide evidence of growth. I make a simple line chart using a grid and drawing the line on by hand - not real impressive but easy for parents to understand. You can also do some charting with Excel, and someone just told me to try Chart Dog on the Intervention Central website, but I have not checked it out yet.
As for the long time period, yes it is too long. But I like to do some multi-sensory activities with sight words and phonics with sand trays, writing on bumby surfaces, etc. It helps to break the lesson up and keep the student's attention.
