Target RLA™ is a yearlong, high-interest, teacher-friendly, student-involving tool that teaches reading and language skills as well as elaboration in writing. In just 10 to 15 minutes per section, the program provides scaffolding for improvement in reading fluency, vocabulary development, writing elaboration, sentence construction and usage, handwriting, and the development of critical thinking skills. Target RLA™ integrates seamlessly into your current Reading and Language Arts programs!
Students work with a single high-interest passage each week, encouraging the rereading for detail that is so necessary for fluency development and recall. This is especially true for reluctant readers!
Daily questions are provided for each week’s passage, allowing students to practice revising, editing, handwriting, and elaboration skills on their student think sheets. Guided Writing Prompts and Correct the Sentence activities focus on each step of the process, allowing students to become familiar with the practice of planning and preparing their writing.
Sometimes students may finish their work quickly. Our Smart Choices™ poster (included free in this program!) is designed to help students learn to use their time wisely when this happens. The front of the poster has a list of several engaging sponge activities for students to choose from, while the back has directions for each.
brings Target RLA™ to every student device. Students submit their work from their iPad, Chromebook, or any
other device using lessons customized for a self-guided experience. Questions match between virtual board and Plus programs, so students can use trusted Lone Star Learning products wherever they go.

Target RLA™ Virtual Board consists of two programs: Reading and Language Arts. They can be used at the same time or separately. Both are correlated to the Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge (TEKS) as well as the Common Core, so they’re compatible with any curriculum. It is also a rigorous program, focusing on critical thinking, application of problem-solving strategies, and selective use of information from passages so students will be prepared for any major exam, including the STAAR® test. Best of all, all of these skills are covered in just minutes each day!
Reading features a weekly passage and multimodal content students use to answer open-ended and test-like questions.
Writing features daily activities to build editing and writing skills, including “Correct the Sentence” and “Elaboration” activities that build on the previous day’s work.
