Primary students can make incredible reading growth each year and I am always looking for a quick and easy way to track that growth. This is a simple form that works for me, so I thought I’d share the idea with you. It’s just a table I created in PowerPoint to match the levels our testing kits assess.
After receiving my class list, I plug in the names of students onto the chart. This one page chart is super handy while making sure to prep enough copies for reading assessments. Not to mention it fits into a sheet protector that is kept in the front of my grade book for safe keeping! Here is an example of a class I recently had (I use names on my handwritten chart, but changed them to numbers to protect student privacy while sharing here):
Considering I reduced the number of students below grade level from 9 to 5, I was thrilled! Not to mention that 3 of those 5 are only one level below.
How do you track reading progress throughout the year? I’d love to hear about it!
