But until it changes I had to find a way to keep all of that data, paperwork and information organized! Like a lot of teachers I keep my data in a binder. Click the picture to get your FREE copy of the cute cover. Having a cute cover makes me smile when I pull the binder out! (graphics by mycutegraphics.com and the3amteacher.blogspot.com)
Inside the binder I have a plastic divider with pockets for each student. In the front pocket I keep their latest running record from the Fountas and Pinnell testing.
When you flip the pocket over on the other side I keep the papers that we copy and include in the report card. Hole punched and in the binder is a sheet that I keep on each student with most of their basic literacy skills listed and all of the Common Core math targets listed. This allows me to see the overall picture of each student at a glance. (Sorry about the picture I couldn't get it to turn!)
In the front cover of my binder I keep all of those charts I am obsessive about making clipped together. I have one for letter sounds, letter recognition, sight words, number recognition, and lots of other skills. This allows me to see how the class as a whole is doing on individual skills. So I might pull it out as we are reviewing the sight word said to see who still needs work on reading that word and I can quickly pull them together as a group. (Again sorry about the pic. Arghh!)
If you would like a copy of my individual student sheet just click on the picture below to get your FREE copy. I would be happy to modify it for you, just let me know. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (I've got to see if I can add that to my side bar!)
Thanks for reading!
