How Could Kim Meet the Diverse Needs of Her Students?
- The EAR words such as near, fear, rear. The rhyme goes like this:
- The HEN words (then and when)
- The OLD words (gold, cold, sold, and fold)
2) Visual Processing: Kim suggested, "The children that struggle with visual processing needed interventions that help with ordering letters correctly, practicing pattern formation, and discriminating the direction of letters." The course goes into great detail with an assessment and remedial suggestions, but here are a few recommended visual processing tools.
3) Auditory and Visual Processing: Kim indicated, "Then there are those who seem to have both auditory and visual processing problems." Again, the course offers an assessment tool as well as multisensory remedial recommendations. Here are some fun auditory processing resources.
How is This New Form of Intervention Working in the Class?
Kim Took my Suggestions to Heart
- "I have also incorporated many of your insights such as writing on Flour Trays, using magnetic letters and utilizing bottle tops with letters on them."
- "For the first time ever, I have dared to do literacy stations with my class. Because they are so busy doing stuff, it is working and beneficial - as opposed to a chaotic nightmare."
- "I have also tried to implement your visualization techniques," so students can learn how to use their mind's eye to assist with learning and recall.
- "Another thing, I have noticed is that they excitedly recognize word parts such as EAR and OLD when they read individually for me. The sequential teaching of the spelling rules and application in their creative writing has also improved."

It was a true pleasure to feature Kim's case study, and it is wonderful to learn about how she is helping all of her students to succeed! I hope you enjoyed this post.
