Meaningful Power Goals
In this day and age, we have so many of our students that have both parents working. It's hard to get home, make dinner, and spend quality time with our kids. Finishing homework can seem like a chore instead of a time to interact with our children. That's why I really wanted Power Goals that are fun, fast, and easy.
I have an active little 4 year old who wants so much to be like his big brother and sister. He sees them reading every night earning their steps for Action 100. He really enjoys learning his letters but wasn't interested in reading on his own yet. He had all the skills I just needed something that was able to get him actively involved.
Take a sneak peak at how effective power goals can look in your students' home.
Speed Racer is his Favorite Game!
There are many fun games to play so they never get bored.
Besides having great games, you will also find Power Goals that are focused and keep kids moving at a nice easy pace.
If you are ready to see some great result in your classroom, check out this Yellow Action 100 Bundle.

Oi! Oy! Have we had a lot of fun this past week learning about our new vowel team! Who new learning could actually be this much fun and by the end of the week our entire class could read oi/oy words and new the spelling rule! YES...I love success stories! So you ask how did we do it. Take a look yourself and get a snapshot of the learning that went on this week in our classroom. The pictures talk for themselves!
As you can see, learning is fun in room 117. Our kids are engaged while learning essential skills that make them all great readers and writers. We hope you take a look at our new Vowel Team Packet. You will find whole group lessons, assessments, word list, fluency passages, small group activities to be used during guided reading, whole group activities, centers, games, and more!

Does this look like May 2nd? It really is!
Then the focus turns to the make-up of the word - such as prefixes and suffixes, root words, vocabulary and figurative language. Once I know what each student needs to work on, we read books, read word lists and have activities to help practice and become comfortable with the skill. I move each student to the next skill when they are ready. Using this bundle allows me to differentiate in such an easy way.

On Day 4 students made words with cups.
On Day 5 we played a game as a class where the teacher said a word sort "or" and students needed to get to a word in the room quickly.
We had a fun week learning about bossy r words! We wish you Godspeed (Good Luck)!
Fairwinds! (Good Bye)
