Intervention plan
I will use phoneme segmentation games and activities. I will use the use of technology to
help my student on phoneme segmentation. I create a week plan to help my students on his
reading skills.
RTI time/ 8:50-9:00
Phonological Awareness / phoneme segmentation
5 times daily per one month. He will practice 20 words daily. He will do phoneme segmentation
on each word. Within 10 minutes for these words Francisco will be proficient if he can segment
each word within 80% of accuracy. Every day he will practice new words and the words that he
is not mastering.
Pictures and word cards to segment the words.
Jump Along with Phonemes
Segmenting words using pictures cards
Elkonic boxes
Rubber band stretch
Internet and Ipad apps.
There are 14 different activities, we will work each day one different in the week one, two, and
three for the week four we will repeat the activities in random order.
1. I will review name of pictures. I will say each sound of the word. He will repeat after me.
I will put the name of the pictures on sectioned paper. Student will say name of picture
and sound.
2. I will provide a segmentation puzzle, he will do phoneme segmentation with the puzzle.
3. I will mark a paper with a series of 12 lines. Student begins by standing in a row ALONG
the first line. The teacher calls out a word like "top". Then I say "go". Child jump forward
the number of phonemes in the word. If the child is correct (in this case, he has jumped
forward 3 rows), he keeps his place. If incorrect, he moves back to the beginning line.
4. I will have words/pictures of 2 or 3 phoneme words. I will model first word and I will
allow student as much independence as possible and reduce the verbal cues as the student
puts a manipulative for each sound he hears.
5. I will say a word and count the sounds with his fingers. I will say a word and student will
count sounds with his fingers. Student should say the word.
6. We will play with the words by clapping the sound. I will say a word and student will tap
sounds on the table and clap for word.
7. I will prepare a card with a picture of a simple word at the top. Below the picture is a
matrix that contains a box for each phoneme (not letter) in the word. I will model the
process by slowly articulating the word phoneme-by-phoneme while pushing a counter
(bingo chip, penny, etc.) into a box for each phoneme. The child can say the word with
the teacher while the counters are being placed.
8. The use of technology
a) Ipad,
b) Ipod
c) Computers
Independently he can use the technology and practice his phoneme sounds and
segmentation. He can use Destinations Starfall and ABC Mouse.
9. I will models with a large rubber band how to stretch out a word as the word is said.
/mmmmm/aaaaaaaa/nnnnnnnnnn/ Teacher models with stretched out band how to bring
rubber band back to original length and says the word fast: /man/. He will pretend to
stretch rubber bands as he says the sounds in different words.
10. Evaluate student growth daily. Each day, before the student practices word segmentation
(whether alone, with a peer, or with an adult), the teacher administers a brief 5 words test.
The daily pre-test contains any words that the student was working the day before. This
evaluation is to measure his advance.
11. Provide games such as word searches, spelling soup, and fill in the blanks, with every
word that he is working needs to be segmented.
Intervention plan
