    I do a reading themed bulletin board for each quarter. We do A.R. and I have the percentages of points as their goals:

    25% 50% 75% 100% (of goal)

    I do this so everyone has the same goal... but not really.

    I have ideas for three quarters but I need another idea. I want something kind of original and not too babyish because it is for 5th grade.

    Here's what I might use so far:

    1st quarter: “Fishing for great readers”
    -pond set up. Each student has a fish and they are swimming towards the fisherman at the dock.


    3rd quarter: “Rockin’ Readers”
    -jukebox type theme with old records. Students' names would be music notes or cd’s (silver, gold, platinum, grammy)


    4th quarter: “Leaping Lily Pads! These are GREAT readers!”
    -frogs jumping to different lily pads. Students' names on a frog.

    You guys have any ideas for a reading goal bulletin board? Please share!

    football for 2nd quarter
    Going for the Goal!
    (make a football field and partition it off for the different goal levels, 100% is the opposite end zone, 50% is the 50 yard line, 25% and 75% are the 25 yard lines on either side of the 50)

    I like the idea of having 4 goals for each quarter. Last year I tracked ar and it got too overwhelming and time consuming because we put a sticker on their shape for the quarter every time they got 1 point. I think I need to learn how to set AR goals for each student in the computer. Then at the end of each quarter we can have a reward for the students that accomplished 100% of their goal for that qrt. Thanks for the ideas!

    For Winter, I cut out a big snowman from white butcher paper and put him on the board. Each time a student takes/passes an AR test, he/she receives a paper snowball to glue on the snowman. Of course, their name is on the snowball in black marker. We do that until the snowman is completely full. The kids love this.
