Throughout the year, we want our readers to build their stamina. When they come to second grade, they have just come from summer break and their reading stamina is very low.
We usually kick off in our first unit that my district uses by charting our stamina. I wanted my students to take ownership of their stamina and our class stamina so I created this goal sheet to set a goal for themselves and try to track it. This is also a great way for me to continue making stamina and engagement a priority.
In order for this to work, I usually put a stopwatch on the board so the students will be able to check the time they have read until they got distracted by something. They will then jot it down on a sticky note to chart later.
The class goal helps to build community and remember that our class has a goal and the student is a part of it. Just because it is a class goal, does not mean it isn’t important or pertain to you.
I usually put this in a page protector and the students can reuse weekly. They mark with a wet erase marker.
You could also replace these each week and use them to collect data on students who have an engagement issue.
There are several different variations to choose from. I usually have my students take home for books a night and switch out each day but I left an option for you to customize how many books they are to choose to take home.
I also made a form that has amount of books. I was thinking about my students who are reading on a kinder and first grade level, their goal is to read as many just right books as possible so their form could look a little different where they chart how many books they are reading, rather than for how long.
