TOPS reports are fairly easy to figure out. Your child's book level goal and progress toward it are stated. All students have a goal of 85% accuracy. And one goal that's just as important is the point goal.
Lately we've talked about what the room should look like during independent reading, and the kids started to rate themselves using a rubric to determine how they "are" as a reader. I've also explained to them that this is a REQUIREMENT, not a choice. They do have many choices in what they read, thousands of good books are Accelerated Reader books.
We want to create a community of readers!
Note: As of today, we are 41% of the way through first quarter.
