Goal-setting for reading
This product is designed to help your kids move towards proficiency with their reading by having them set goals to improve their reading.
Using your own data, through running records, observations, and conferences, you will be able to see what your kids need.
Once you have decided on one to two goals for your students, I would meet with each student to discuss what you notice. Help them to take ownership of their reading by including them in the conversation.
I would use their reading folder or journal to attach one to two goals. You can also use my goal-setting sheet to attach the labels. The goal-setting sheet allows them to reflect after reading. You could also not laminate but print on cardstock and kids could tally as they reflect each day on how they felt their reading went. Prior to independent reading, have them review their goal(s) and then after reading, review once more so they can reflect on their reading.
Once they have mastered a goal, a new one can be placed on top of the old. If kids are tallying, you will want a new goal sheet.
Here is what is included:
30 COLOR labels-you can use Avery™ mailing labels #5160 to print them or just print and cut apart and glue
Goal-setting sheet which can be printed on cardstock and laminated and kept in a folder or journal (color and black and white, featuring both a boy and a girl)
Labels focus on fluency, stamina, comprehension, and self-monitoring
The labels are in written in the first person
Visuals help to cue the reader
take a breath at the period
making the voice go up at a question mark
making reading match the character’s face, body, voice
sweeping eyes under the whole line
reading the way you talk
looking ahead to punctuation and read it again
Focus and stamina
thinking about what’s happening so far and rereading
looking at the pictures and think about what I see
using a timer to set a time goal and add more time each day
using a stickie note to set page goals and read until I get there
using a stickie note to read up to and then taking a “break” read with another book (magazine, poem)
if my mind wanders, I will skim back to find the last page I remember reading and reread from there
if I get distracted, I can stop and notice where my attention was and go back to the last place I was really understanding and reread from there
Comprehension (not an exhaustive list by any means)
making a movie in my mind (visualizing)
read and retell to include key ideas and details
rereading to figure out if something was unclear
stop when it doesn’t make sense
use the picture to help figure out unknown words
backtrack and reread
get my mouth ready to say the first sound of the unknown word
stretch out the words
does it look right?
does it sound right?
does it make sense?
read through the word
take off the ending to read the word and then try to read the whole word
All kids have individual needs, but these labels can help you help them address how to become a better reader. I would recommend to intervention teachers, teachers of early readers up to early second grade.
**This is the first set with more to come in the near future!
