Tracking Student's Progress

This year in my district they are very big on tracking students progress. Sometimes it feels like we have way too much paperwork, but I love to look at one sheet of paper and see "at a glance" how a student has progressed during the year. And it's easy to show parents the growth their child has made or the growth they need to make!
 I realized I needed an easy way for my students to be able to track their own progress that was age appropriate. We give reading Image It! test and Spelling Test every Friday and then Math test whenever we finish the unit. I wanted an easy way for my students to be able to look at their test and track their progress. I think it will help me keep track of their progress and I plan on sharing this with parents at student progress meetings. I have been using the data folders for 3 weeks now and my students love it. They always ask can I fill out my data sheet!!!! It makes me so happy when they do a little dance to show that there data bar moved up. Pictures of my students graphing their data are coming......If you want to buy this unit please click on the pictures below!!!

Trying to get better

Life has been so busy with teaching 1st grade for the 1st time and being in grad school. I feel like all I do is work work work... We have been learning about habitats in our classroom. My students loved learning about habitats. We made a classroom tree and the students brought in animals to go in our tree. This week we are going to be learning all about Community Helpers. This week we are also voting on who we think should be President, Duck, Grace or Mrs. Williams. I am going to post pictures this week!!! Have a great Monday
