I made this clip chart to use so the kids will see where they are.
Last year I used stickers to record and it was a struggle just to get some kids to the 25 book goal. Some just quit when they reached the 25 books. Not what I really want the kids to do. I really, really, really am not sold on AR but since our school is "into it" I go along. I would rather the kids read for enjoyment and information. Hopefully this will encourage the kids to keep reading!
This is last years clip chart for behavior which I never used so I will replace it with AR and reward each step with a small token of some kind.
We are tossing a basal in our district and using a balanced literacy approach--based on reading and writing workshop. We are using the Benchmark Literacy adoption.
