A set of 90 goal cards focusing on literacy for lower primary.

This set of goal cards have been designed to help students develop their literacy skills. These goals help students to reflect upon their work and become more responsible for their own learning.

Print, laminate and stick a small magnetic strip to the back so they can be stuck on to your classroom whiteboard. Blank cards are also included for personalised goals.

Use the PDF Checklist to track all of the goals for each student.

The Excel Spreadsheet can be used to track the goals for all of your students. In the Excel spreadsheet, you can type a ‘y’ to get a green box that indicates the student has achieved that goal, an ‘n’ to indicate the child has not achieved the goal yet and a ‘w’ to indicate that the child is working toward achieving the goal.

Goals are included for: Reading, Comprehension, Writing and Speaking & Listening.

Can be used in conjunction with:

      Hi Tisha,

      We have these for lower and upper primary. The lower primary approximately covers Foundation to Grade 3 and upper covers Grade 4 to 6. We would suggest that you download both files and pick out the ones that are applicable to your students, as there may be some in both that are applicable.

      Kind regards

    Hi, I’ve download this resource, however the literacy goal tracker document shown on this page was not part of the file. How can I download the literacy goal tracker? I’ve searched for it on the site and can’t find it.

    Thank you.
