When I've recharged my batteries, and hopefully get off to a new start January 6th, I can set some new goal with my kids. Since I'm a reading specialist, I'm narrowed down to literacy goals, but then--that's a lot when we're talking kindergarten through eighth grade!
One thing I know I can set into motion is getting kids to be responsible for their own fluency progress. I've had kids working on this since September, and involved parents in the timing....It really is a productive activity that builds over time, and children really do see their progress spike!
This is what I've put up on Teachers Pay Teachers just recently. Check it out and see if it's something you're already doing with kids....Remember, you can start as early as first grade with Fountas and Pinnell Levels D and up. This makes it just a little handier for you to have kids graph their progress...a little more kid-friendly than just a plain old grid.
Have a warm and wonderful holiday! And Happy New Year!
