I teach an elementary self-contained class for students with moderate to severe disabilities in the Lake Stevens School District. I have been using CAFE for two years with some of the students in our program and have seen great results! I made a few resources for my students to help them remember their goals, and I thought that other special education (or general education) teachers may be interested.

I made a strategy book that they keep in their book boxes. In the book, there is a page for each component of reading. The pages contain blank areas for each strategy, and boxes for the students to mark when they use a strategy. I print each strategy with a picture cue on address labels and the students stick these in their books as they learn each strategy. I also cut out a small square of laminater film to create a pocket for their goal (written on a small sheet of paper) on the inside of the book.

At the beginning of our read to self time, I cue the students to check their CAFE menu and review their goal. I have noticed that my students are much more focused on their goals when they are right in front of them. This system has been very easy to manage.
