Reading Strategy Friends:
I can look at the pictures. (Eagle Eye)
I can make the beginning sound. (Lips the Fish)
I can blend sounds. (Stretchy Snake)
I can look for word chunks. (Chunky Monkey)
I can “flip” the vowel sound. (Flippy Dolphin)
I can skip the word. (Skippy Frog)
I can keep trying. (Tryin’Lion)
I can ask for help. (Helpful Kangaroo)
Print one or two per page in color for classroom display and then clip students names to their personal reading goal. I have found printing 2 per page saves classroom space!
Also, I print the goal cards in b/w so I can send a copy home for parent awareness/involvement and to document student growth in a data portfolio.
