The pie chart provided by Reading Checkup should be used to help guide how your child spends their learning time. If you have enough time to work on multiple activities (an hour or more) consider dividing up the total amount of time based on how it appears on the pie chart.

Example: An adult uses the pie chart provided to plan for a block of instruction time.

What if I don’t have an hour?

If you only have time for a quick activity and the student is above grade level, select something from the largest areas of the pie chart to prioritize what type of learning they need most. Keep going in order until you run out of time.

For students at or below grade level prioritize Adult-managed time first. Then go in order of pie chart size until you run out of time.
