Next week will be my fourth week of official RTI. I started with two addition groups, and several of my students have already met their addition goals, so as of next week, I'll have two math RTI groups. One group will focus on subtraction, and the other group will continue working on addition. All of my students in the addition group will eventually need to focus on subtraction, but we're only focusing on one skill at a time. Once they meet their addition goal, they'll start subtraction. It will be several weeks before I give a universal screening on multiplication, since I'm just beginning that unit.
I keep all of my lesson plans, notes, and data in a three-ring binder.
I've divided the front portion of the binder into four sections: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. (Thankfully, I didn't need a place value section this year.) I keep my addition notes and lessons plans in the addition section, and now that I'm getting ready to start subtraction, I'll begin adding information to that section soon.
I also have a page divider with a pocket for each student I am working with. In the pocket, I keep all of the student's CBMs and their progress monitoring graph. I give one CBM a week and have my students graph their results.
My biggest concern is the possibility of needing three RTI groups. I worry that I'll end up with a couple students on addition, a couple on subtraction, and a few on multiplication. I can manage two groups, but I'm not so sure about three. How do you (or would you) handle that?
The page dividers aren't in my RTI packet, so I've added them here for you to grab!
Just click on the picture below for the dividers.
