RAH! RAH! Read At Home!!

 I'm so excited that I finally finished updating my RAH! RAH! Read At Home! charts. This was one of the best additions to my Nightly Reading homework... mainly because it's so easy for kids (and their parents) to complete.  Parents never seem to complete those old reading logs, so I had to do something a bit simpler.  On a RAH chart they simply color one bar for each 20 minutes of reading.  Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!! 


I LOVE using them... and they store perfectly in our EAGLE Notebooks. We keep our Nightly Reading books (from Reading A-Z) in these poly envelopes--they have a 3 hole punch for the binder and Velcro closure (gotta love Velcro!).  We add these labels (printed six to a sheet).

Our school is a Baldrige in Education school, so you've got to have that data component... and this makes it easy to see where the student is currently and his/her monthly reading goal.  To add some extra incentive, I made a class goal chart also.  This chart tracks the class' data--as a whole.  Students keep this in their EAGLE Notebook as well (clear sleeves work great for this!).  Each month, total the number of students in the class who met their goal.  Color that column to note the class' progress.  The far right bar shows the total number of students.  We use “rainbow” order (September=red, October=orange, November=yellow, December=green, January=blue, February=purple, March=pink, April=teal (one of our school colors), May=silver, June and GOAL=gold!)
If you think you might want to take a peak... check it out in my TpT store.  




Have an incredible night!!
