I ask that students that students read 7 nights a week, BUT I also know that this is not very likely. Therefore, I have set a goal for every student to read at least 4 nights a week…meaning if our class reads 100 nights (as a team) each week we will be well on our way to becoming better readers.
For right now, our 100 Star Goal is working for us. We don’t hit our goal every week, but it gives us a goal to shoot for. Even if we don’t reach the goal, we know that any stars we colored means we are becoming better readers and that is AWESOME!
How do you manage independent reading in your classroom? I would love to hear how at-home reading works for you and your friends. If you’re interested in any of the resources I use, you may grab them from DropBox as a freebie!
