Have multiple copies ready to go.
Color copies work best for important reminders.
Each student begins with the first level chart - bookworm chart. Keep the chart in either their book box, Daily 5 folder, or reading homework folder. You set the goals for your students. You can have different goals for each reading group or the same goal for your class. Suggested goals:
- Read one book
- Return weekly reading log
- Read for 30 minutes
- When students achieve the goal they earn a sticker, stamp, or hole punch on their chart.
- Students earn a prize when they fill their chart.
- Give students a new chart which is the next level when they complete a chart.
With this system, you are rewarding EFFORT not reading level. Students who work hard will advance to the next level.
