This document contains student friendly reading goal examples.
I have put together ideas I have seen from all over the place, including First Steps, to be a very student friendly document.
It is editable so allows you to add/delete/revise depending on the year level you have.
It contains 3 pages of reading strategies/goals/next steps; The fourth page is one that the student fills out. It includes a space for their reading age/level, what sort of reader they are/want to be, and their goals.
Below are some examples of the reading goals included in the document:
I can read smoothly and with expression. When I read, the words flow.
*I can apply different reading rates to different texts (fiction = normal; fact/non-fiction = slow down)
*I can use punctuation marks to help me think how to read the text
*I ‘catch’ interesting and new words as I read
*I can use word parts to figure out the meaning of new words, e.g. prefixes, suffixes, word origins
Goals may be negotiated with the teacher and/or chosen by the student (e.g. students may highlight a range of goals they think would be helpful for them, then choose their main goal/s from this).
**Once students have written up their reading goals on the sheet, I have them complete a visual display (I have a reading wall where they go up).Students love this display as they add artistic design to the border and I use their face to glue on which looks like a 'bobble head'.
