Practical Ideas and Strategies

Preschool and kindergarten students walk through the doors of our schools and classrooms with vastly different
pre-reading skills and experiences. The question we face as early childhood educators is how to meet the needs of ALL students in our classroom – those who have been read to since birth as well as those that have rarely seen a book.

Response to Intervention (RTI) can help close this gap before some students start to fall behind. Join Angela Cameron in her practical seminar focused just on pre-K and kindergarten as she examines how to effectively utilize the RTI three tier model. Angela will share numerous classroom tested activities, ideas, and strategies appropriate for Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 instruction. Activities will focus on phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency, as well as writing and oral language.

The entire day is packed with practical ideas you can take back to your classroom and implement immediately with your own students. Join Angela for a day devoted to learning how to use RTI to increase and enhance the literacy development of all your students.

A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

As preschool and kindergarten teachers, we know that the students who walk through the doors of our classrooms each year will have vastly different literacy experiences. Some have been read to before they were born, while others have rarely experienced the pleasure of enjoying a good book. We know that to ensure the literacy success of all our students, it is critically important to assess their needs and strengths and provide the right kind of classroom instruction and intervention. To this end, Response to Intervention (RTI) is proving to be a highly effective way to support students who struggle with literacy skills before they fall too far behind.

I am excited to share with you how to implement RTI successfully in your preschool or kindergarten classroom. I will introduce you to a three tier RTI model and explain how to implement and manage it. I will also give you a wealth of practical ideas, strategies, tips, and tools that you can use immediately to work with all of your students, and especially with those who are struggling to learn early literacy skills. Our day together will be filled with easy-to-implement, classroom-tested activities that my students love – and yours will too.

Please join me for an engaging, fun and worthwhile day that will give you practical ideas and abundant resources for implementing RTI in your classroom. Rest assured that whether you are a veteran or a brand-new teacher just starting out, EVERYONE will walk away with many quick, easy and ready-to-use ideas for improving your students’ phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency, writing, and oral language skills.

I look forward to meeting each of you at the seminar and sharing my passion for early literacy with you!

Sincerely,
Angela Cameron
