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 can be printed and joined together in a poster, used as a flip chart to highlight your lesson objective, attached together and used as a chart to show what goal kids have (write on laminated poster with expo marker, use clothespins, or velcro labels). They can also be printed on card stock, laminated, bookmarks, inserted as graphics on letters, posters, classroom trackers, etc.
