Description

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.

  1. Nicole Armendariz, 5th grade Dumas Intermediate School

    We use Target RLA every day!! Love that it incorporates reading and writing in just a few minutes. The built-in sight words are great. I will be using it again this year!

  2. – Kim Taylor , Dumas ISD

    Target RLA has great passages (multiple genres!) and the questions are rigorous and really get my students thinking. I love that we use the same passage on multiple days and we love the editing practice.

  3. Ennis ISD 5th grade teacher

    We have just recently purchased Target Reading and we LOVE it! One testimony to why it works is that it has helped students work through the answers together as a class and reason why the answers are correct/incorrect. Every morning they come in and get their Chromebooks and start working because they are eager to discuss the question and answer choices as a class and talk about what kind of strategies they need to use on the question.

  4. Sara Rossett

    Target Reading is very user friendly, and the content is excellent.

  5. Melissa Rhine

    I love that it covers all my TEKS and reviews! I also love that it is short, sweet, and to the point!

  6. Jacy Roach, Garner ISD, 5th grade

    I love the questioning, short answer and multiple choice options. This is just a great review!

  7. Laura Depp

    This product aligns well to the TEKS. The spiral review gives students ongoing practice.

  8. Leslie McCullough

    The comprehension questions build each day. I had students making 30’s before beginning this and students are now making 60’s. Would love if the literature was connected to Renaissance or Epic.

  9. 6th grade teacher in Texas

    I use digital Target Reading for my 6th grade class. I love the high interest passages and the higher level thinking questions. I also love the option to use open ended questions or multiple choice questions. I feel that this program had a positive impact in improving my students’ test scores.

  10. Kritstin Williams

    I am so impressed with the Target Reading program I purchased for my 4th-grade class. We are going into the 4th week of school and this is my first year utilizing it, but I can already see a change in my students writing. I am teaching at a tier 4, title 1 school. About 30% of my students passed STAAR last year and I knew they would need some extra practice if they were going to have any hope of improving this year. This program has interesting stories every week that are fun for the students to read. They never get bored with the materials provided. I love the sentence building exercise that they do every day because not only are they learning how to build good, descriptive sentences but they are learning what nouns, verbs, and adjectives are. And this is something they practice EVERY day. The questions of the day are higher level thinking and require the students to refer back to the story for details. I can’t say enough good things about this program. Money well spent and I will be using it for years to come. Thank you for creating this wonderful program! It is something I think every district in Texas should be using.

    I absolutely LOVE Target Reading. It provides me the opportunity to touch on some concepts not formally introduced yet as well as reviewing important concepts throughout the year.
