Quarter 1 Reading and Writing Goals
Reading: To read constantly, and record how many chapters I read. The evidence will be a google document I made. Specific? I would mark how many chapters I read every night. Measurable? I will try to AT LEAST read one chapter every night. Actionable? If I don’t have my computer, I will write the date on a piece of paper and record it that way and put it on my document later. (Don’t really need Realistic). Timely? I will keep recording if I read and how many chapters until Quarter 1 ends, or continue to do it if it helps me (which it does).
Writing: To increase my vocabulary! My evidence will be my parents and Ms. Bevear, because I will be trying to word bomb ALL DAY. Specific? I will look at one word and try to word bomb it. I will learn at least 3 words every week. Measurable? I will word bomb for at least one day. I would learn at least 3 words a week. Actionable? I would write the word I’m word bombing on a sticky note, and put it on my water bottle (since I carry it everywhere), and I would also tell Ms. Bevear the word I’m word bombing. Realistic? I would ask Ms. Bevear if I don’t know how to use a word in a sentence. Timely? I would learn at least 12 words from now until the end of quarter 1 if I’m consistent.

Quarter 2 Reading and Writing Goals
Reading: To keep reading consistently and recording how many chapters I read. The evidence is a google document I made. I will also read mystery and more non-fiction books like non-fiction, autobiography, biography, historical fiction, poetry, or science fiction. The evidence will be my reading log.
Writing: To try and increase my vocabulary. I will write the word I’m going to learn in my planner in the P.O.T.D. area everyday. I will try to learn at least 1 word a week (to remember the writing goal and do it.) I should have a reward to motivate me like chocolate or something that would get me motivated. My evidence will be my planner (to see the word).

Quarter 3 Reading and Writing Goals
Isabella Tan’s Quarter 2 Presentation (I couldn’t upload it through a file since it’s too big…)
Reading: To read consistently and record how many chapters I read. The evidence would be the google doc I made. I should also read more non-fiction books, so I plan to have a list of recommended non-fiction books. The evidence will be my reading log, since it’ll have the non-fiction books I finished on it.
Writing: To increase my vocabulary. I will write an email at the end of the week, with sentences with words from my Word Wall. The evidence will be the emails I sent, and Ms. Bevear to check. This is a good way to check if I used the word correctly. To remind myself, I would write the word I’m using in my word wall. I could also ask Ms. Bevear for “recommended” words, words that I can use in everyday language, and can also use in my writing.

Quarter 4 Reading and Writing Goals
Reading: READ CONSISTENTLY, and record how many chapters I’ve read. I need to read more consistently, so I’m going to record how many chapters everyday. The evidence would be on the google doc I made that records all the chapters I’ve read. It’s realistic because I could read at least 2 chapters every night, and it’s not too difficult to read consistently, or I could read more if I have time. It’s timely because I’m going to read every night in quarter 4.
Writing: I’m going to improve my grammar by Ms. Bevear what kinds of grammar exercises I could do at home. The evidence will be Ms. Bevear and my planner. I can achieve this by writing when to stay after school (maybe every Tuesday) in my planner. This is realistic because I would be working on my grammar, and I would have it in my planner to remind me of what I need to do. It’s timely because I would be staying after school on Tuesdays in quarter 4.
