This mat directly correlates with the NEW Lucy Caulkins Reading Units of Study for grade 1. It encourages children to make a plan for their reading by stacking their books. Then reading all books on the green dot side of their mat and transferring them to the red dot side. Once they finish all of their books they are encouraged to reread them and send them back to the green dot side! This is intended to be used by being printed and put on the front of a file folder. You can then use a green and red dot stickers to label the inside of your folder and TaDa you are done :)!
