Teach your students to use their reading mats to keep track of the books they read during their independent or partner reading time. Students put a stack of books from on the left side of the folder that says "Will you read us again?" As they read each book, they move it to the side that says "Thank You". At the end of the reading time they can close the folder and check their reading stamina where it says "You did it! How did you do?" These are a great resource for students. I print these on adhesive labels ( they sell whole sheet labels that measure 8 1/2 by 11), and affix them to plastic folders. I like to use plastic folders, because any strategy reminders I give to my students they can keep in their reading mat.
