Three Billy Goats Gruff

Ever since I created my Jack and the Beanstalk Dynamic Assessment/RTI Unit, I have wanted to do more. But I’ve been struggling and struggling with the fairytale to choose. At last I decided on a story, but then I didn’t have the time to actually create the unit.

The pressure has been on, however, because I have 4 elementary students with low-language skills and English as a second language who need informal assessments to measure progress over time. And I have to start testing these kids THIS week.

So, here it is (insert cheering)! The Three Billy Goats Gruff unit for measuring response to intervention. The story (written by yours truly) is quite simple and the assessment areas and interventions are narrative retell, vocabulary (simple nouns and adjectives), and basic concepts (prepositions).

Here’s what it looks like:

Story and pictures to go with the story:

Narrative Assessment:

Vocabulary Dynamic Assessment:

Basic Concepts Assessment:
