This set of 32 cards contains reading goals for students that target both accuracy (decoding) and comprehension. The intention is that when students know their specific reading goal, they can easily move to the next level in reading. This set contains both color and b&w versions that prints on Avery 5390 labels (name badges) or can be printed on card stock, laminated, bookmarks, inserted as graphics on letters, posters, classroom trackers, etc.
I prefer printing them on labels so that I can stick them to their book baggies, notecards as bookmarks, in letters home to parents, on classroom trackers etc. This way I can just cover up their old goal with a new sticker, depending on the movement within the class itself.
Goals in kid-friendly language:
One-to-One Correspondence: Point to Each Word
Initial Sounds: Check the First Letter
Using Picture as a Reference: Check the Picture
Ending Sounds and Suffixes: Don't Leave Off Pesky Endings
Inferences: Read and Think "Does this connect to what I already know?"
Context Clues: Read and Read Again
Decoding: Stretch and Read
Character Feelings: How Does My Character Feel?
Fluency: Storytelling Voice
Retelling: Stop after each page and think: What just happened?
Textual Evidence: Find Evidence in the Book
Retelling w/ Transitions: Retell Across 5 Fingers (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Nonfiction: Notice Text Features (ex: map and index)
Fiction: What is the character's problem? How do they solve it?
Behavior: Best Effort
Sight Words: See it and know
Updated to include full sheets of single each reading goal (color and b&w)!
