I found that my students were having a very difficult time navigating independent reading and were not motivated at all! They would pretend to look at a book just to pass the time. This resource has made a huge impact in my classroom readers and is aiding in creating reader's that are motivated to pick up the "just right" books for them to go on an adventure with.
Within this resource you will find an explicit reading plan with teacher directions that will show you exactly how I use this motivating independent reading system in my classroom, as well as reading logs, short answer questions on bulletin board worthy pages, our prize/earning system, gold coins to hand out as the students earn, on our own reading strategies poster, active reader poster and an "adventurer of the day" certificate!
