We all know that independent reading is essential in developing critical literacy skills in our students. In my first few years of teaching, I struggled with portioning out time for students to read independently even though I knew its importance. I tried a handful of ways to provide more accountability so that it wouldn't feel like I was using time unwisely, but nothing really stuck.
The items featured in this bundle have helped me a great deal in not only keeping my students accountable for the many minutes each week that we spend reading independently in class but also providing a way for us to consistently practice and apply reading strategies. The forms themselves can be used with several different age groups.
Included in this package, you will find the following:
