Classroom Reading Charts Introduction
Get your students excited about reading with these printable Reading Charts! Whether you have them marking off chapters read, or entire books (you decide!) they can mark the chart and get one step closer to earning the agreed upon prize/incentive. For older students, look for useful printables that will help them successfully focus on reading assignments.
Selecting Reading Charts for Your Students
When picking out a Reading Chart for a student, there are two main things to consider: 1) The number of repetitions required before the chart is complete, and 2) Which chart your student will take the most pride in using. If your student is a reluctant reader, make sure to choose a Reading Chart that requires a low number of repetitions before the chart is full–as example would be a dot-to-dot Reading Chart; this will help your student find early success and feel good about increasing the amount they read or the length of time they spend reading.
Using Our Printable Reading Charts
A key goal of using reading charts is to encourage reading and make it a fun activity. Keep this in mind when presenting a reading plan to a child. If a student struggles with reading, it may be something he or she dreads having to do. So use a chart that you think the youngster will enjoy and be as encouraging as you can.
Keep it Interesting
Watch for new opportunities to celebrate your students’ successes! Give them new goals to aspire to and watch for students that are doing things above and beyond what’s expected. Look for students who are making progress, even if there’s still a lot of room for improvement. Remember that baby steps are cause for celebration, too! Aim to keep things fresh, adjusting goals, using new incentives and selecting different charts from our creative selection.
