This is a great reading chart to have in any grade, including 4th - 8th grade classrooms! It is a chart that talks about goals students have for their reading and when they achieve different steps they can move up on the poster. I think it would be a great incentive in the classroom for kids to want to read more! I would probably make mine a little more colorful and creative, but I love the idea!
They picked their favorite book used a piece of cardstock folded to look like a book with a binding. They illustrated the cover, and wrote a brief summary on the back. We read some summaries on the back of some of the books in our class library and the students noticed that many of them ended in questions. We discussed how the questions left you wanting to read more to find out what happens in the book. add their photo & DONE!
writing expectations. One pinner said: Quiet writing time with fun music was one of the MOST peaceful times in my classroom this year. The kids loved it. Love this chart to introduce the expectations for it.
Decoding strategies chart--this will be printed and referred to during guided reading groups with some of my kiddos...would love to have them keep it in their literacy boxes for their own reference, too.
