If you are like me, you know that each of your students is unique in their learning needs. Although you may teach the same minilesson to all students, you will need to do more specialized instruction with some of your students either individually or in small groups. This resource is jam-packed with specific learning goals/targets that cover a wide variety of reading lessons that you may need to work on with certain students. Best practice says that students are more likely to achieve a learning target if they know what the goal is—so this resource is geared toward helping with that.
The learning targets are clustered into categories as listed below:
*How I sound when I read (fluency/accuracy) 7 learning targets
*How I stay focused when I read (reading habits) 7 learning targets
*How I monitor myself when I read 5 learning targets
*How I comprehend informational texts 9 learning targets
*How I comprehend fiction texts 13 learning targets
*How I share my ideas about reading (oral/written) 10 learning targets
Each cluster has different colored background to make it easy to identify. Every learning target in that section has:
*A full page version of the target that can be printed out and displayed during a group/individual meeting.
*A full color page of 3 bookmarks that can be printed and cut and given to students to use. Many ask them to record places in the text where they practiced the skill.
*A black and white version of the bookmark to save on ink.
*Information about each section with instructional hints and background information
SUGGESTIONS FOR USE:
*Print off the full page versions, put in sheet protectors, and put in a binder. Just use post it notes to mark the different pages you are using with groups to easily flip back and forth!
*Print the full page versions 2 per page and use a small three ring binder to keep them.
*Project the full page versions when teaching full class lessons
*Have students glue the bookmarks they “master” in their reading notebooks.
*Tape/glue bookmarks into an assignment notebook to show families what skills are being worked on
