      The best instruction for a student who has an IEP (Individualized educational plan) or 504 plan is when the teacher plans the lessons according to the goals and accommodations. Both plans are implemented when a student needs extra help in order to succeed. The student already has been tested and strengths and weakness are stated in the IEP.

    Quick Assessments to use in the classroom

    When a student has not yet been officially tested by the psychologist, teacher, or educational evaluator the teacher might observe some academic deficits.

    The teacher can give assessments for sight words (Slosson oral reading K-12).

    Great Leaps or any page from a book can be used to rate fluency, comprehension and to note if student uses letter sounds or context clues to say new words.

    Math assessments are usually given at the beginning of the text book or the series comes with an assessment book.


    How to use different strategies/accommodations while teaching online:

    Student reads aloud AT LEAST for half of the session (if able to)

    Use online textbooks with the voice on so the page will be read aloud for the student

    Reading Strategies

    If the text selection is long- take one paragraph at a time and use the highlighter feature to make a box around one paragraph at a time.  (helps with tracking, focus and is not overwhelming)

    Use a word box when students have to complete a sentence with a given word. Read words to the students before doing the assignment.

    Divide complex lessons into smaller mini-lessons. This can be done over a period of 2 to 3 days if needed.

    For difficult reading material (social studies or science) teacher can rewrite the page using less difficult words and more spacing between sentences. This document will be used in place of the text.  For reinforcement, the teacher then can read the actual text to the student. This is a great strategy that helps with vocabulary, fluency and comprehension.

    Organization of thoughts

    Circling, highlighting and underlining are good strategies to help students focus on important terms

    Graphic organizers, webs, outlines and acronyms are excellent ways to break down complex text into understandable terms.


    Touch Math program is excellent at all grade levels.  It’s a tactile way to understand numbers

    Learning and retaining new concepts

    Reading captions, using charts and illustrations are good ways to help the student understand new concepts.

    Use arrows and stars to single out important concepts

    Use study guides for all tests
