Here is a fun way to build reading stamina with your kiddos! Students will go on a mission to build their stamina – creating superhero badges, setting a working goal and graphing the amount of minutes read each day!
You can pick and choose what works for your room! Use each piece independently or all together ! I used it in conjunction with the book "Dex The Heart of a Hero" by Caralyn Buehner.
Stamina Graphs – to graph each day how many minutes the class was able to “read to self”. Building stamina every day (just like Dex) to be super readers!
Tally Challenge – students tally every day they have stamina for 20 minutes. After 20 days they are “superhero stamina experts” – boy/girl badges included (print, cut out, holepunch and tie with string/ribbon)
Superhero Badges – students decorate their own superhero badge (I have them use their first initial like Superman!) Great for identifying beginning sounds. Girl and boy template provided.
Superhero Mission - Students can draw or write something they are going to work hard on this year (2 versions available)
I hope you enjoy this freebie and would love your feedback!
