It's summer time! Time for teachers to kick back and relax by the pool, right? Haha! Well, hopefully you get some time to relax in the sun but we all know teachers never really take a break from school! We are always thinking ahead to next year and doing lots of planning and preparing. I have teamed up with several other teacher-authors to bring you this summer stock up linky where you can learn about some pretty cool products and grab tons of free teaching resources along the way!

Before students can set appropriate goals they must be taught what goals are and how to write meaningful, achievable goals. I have created a set of goal setting posters that teach students the definition of goals and the difference between short-term and long-term goals. They learn what it means for a goal to be specific, attainable, and measurable. Students also learn the difference between reading comprehension and reading fluency as well as learning about reading rate (WPM).
The rest of the product focuses on reading fluency with a WPM chart and 20 different graphs to chose from. Since students may be a different reading levels I have included a variety of graph options with similar styles.
TIP: Build Student Ownership through Progress Monitoring
Students use my reading fluency graphs to chart their daily or weekly progress. Each week they set a goal and graph their results. At the end of the week they color the target if they got a bullseye (reached or exceeded their goal), were very close (within 5 WPM), or close (within 10 WPM). If they missed the target that week they can adjust their goal for the following week. Quarterly progress graphs are also included.
Product #2 Reading Portfolios
TIP: Build Student Ownership through Data Collection
Product #3 Sequencing Sort Skill Center
TIP: Make Reading Assessments Fun & Hands On
Assessing reading comprehension doesn't have to be done with a paper and pencil test. Make test-taking more enjoyable by turning it into a hands-on activity! Hands-on activities may include creating posters, dioramas, acting out a scene of the book and more.
Sequencing can be a difficult skill to master. In my sequencing sort skill center students use picture card sets (of 3) to tell a story. They put the cards in order of first, next and last and then write about them. Blank cards are also included so students can create their own sorts. This center would work great with guided reading as students could make a picture card set to go along with the passage they are reading and then write about the order of events. Another great hands-on way to assess comprehension!
