I teach reading virtually. My last class of the day is my smallest class (13 students). Roughly 3-6 of them actually come to class. 100% of them are severely below grade level in reading and writing. It should be a cotaught class, but I am not working with a sped teacher because we are understaffed. I regularly use read aloud and graphic organizers/sentence starters for every writing assignment. Need suggestions for ways to support them, and help them become rely less on teacher support.
