Why I created these…

I worked with several reading intervention groups everyday – focusing on skills aligned with IEP goals and objectives for early literacy to phonics “bootcamps” and Guided Reading. I loved the resources from Heggerty, but they didn't tackle the exact skills we needed, plus my students needed more “parallel tasks” (same level for accurate data tracking) instead of sequential. That's why I created TWELVE sets of tasks!
