- I can read books by myself.
- I can read a book with my partner.
- I can tell my partner about a book I like.
- I can take an AR test.
When I taught first grade, I also had an option where they could read to one of the stuffed animals I had in the classroom.
You’ll notice all of the statements start with I can. You’ll see this throughout my station tasks cards. It’s a positive statement and shows choice which is one of the benefits of using Literacy Stations.
I have made task card rings with these options on each card. I have a title card and then each “I can” statement is on a separate card. I attach these to cardstock and then laminate for durability. I try to use a different color of cardstock for each station so it’s organized.
On this card, I have a picture of students reading and/or doing the actual task. Due to privacy reasons, I do not have the picture on this example.
