Kids enjoy graphing their own progress! The visual feedback motivates them to read and to meet their goals. These fluency graphs help make reading goals doable!
Whether or not you are doing intervention, having kids graph their own progress gives them self-empowerment, too! They see immediate feedback as soon as they complete their graphs.
They'll enjoy filling out these "race to the finish line" graphs, which can provide helpful information and valid data for conferences, team meetings, and student profiles. When used in an informal reading assessment, the data is useful for student, teacher, and parents!
Once they have met their goals, give them a racecar page (and other optional ones included) to color, decorate, and cut out to proudly display on a bulletin board, or take home. This serves as a "certificate of recognition".
All Print-Friendly and Ready To Go!
