I frequently visit the 2nd-grade reading teacher’s class. A few of my students are in tiered intervention for reading. Thankfully, I do have some wonderful materials in the Amplio platform to support the teacher’s goals.
There is a station set up for me to work with two students at a time. They are both working on the reading learning pathways and I do individual work with each student for the 15 minutes direct/15 minutes learning path twice a week in the reading classroom. It’s great because the reading teacher and I stay in close contact with the needs of these two students.
When I speak with the reading teacher, she says “he’s having trouble with initial sounds in words, so I select the “initial sound drag and drop (word level)” activity. I can target more specific areas of need that the reading teacher identifies for each of these students. It makes for a very synergistic relationship because I can pull the materials in the Amplio Learning Platform and target them on the spot through the learning path, which ultimately allows for faster growth in reading. Ordinarily, I’d have to search for, create or design these materials, but they are already embedded! It saves me time because I no longer have to come up with those materials or activities. The ease with which I can work alongside the teacher has changed.
While I directly target the other goals in the IEP, I can include the reading content in the learning path which supports educational outcomes.
