It has been proven that student achievement increases when students take ownership of their learning and monitor their own learning growth and track their own academic data. This is based on the educational research of Robert Marzano and the leadership criteria in The 7 Habits Highly Effective People for Kids by Stephen Covey.
Although sight phrase reading is out-of-context reading and not an end unto itself, it has been proven to correlate to overall reading fluency and reading comprehension. Fluency phrases or Fry phrases is a standard in the Common Core ELA listed in the Foundational Literacy Skills strand for fluent reading.
This product includes 6 fluency phrases graphs depending on your target:
The graph includes monthly columns and a goal area at the bottom of the graph.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Hi Jen! I have my students read a new passage on Friday,graph it, and then read the same passage the next Friday (reading the same passage every day) to see the growth. I then start all over with a new passage the next Friday. Is this what you do? Do you have any suggestions? Thanks so much!!
I do. I think it's important for them to see the benefit of their effort and that motivation piece and student data graph be part of the intervention. I would also give them a cold passage once every two weeks to see if overall improvement is there and to see if THAT intervention of them reading abd rereading the same passage from F to F is working. Does that make sense?

Hi Jen! I absolutely love your Student Data Notebooks. My students already graph their fluency weekly but I want to start with their vocab, sight words, phrases, and reading levels. I'm also a Reading Specialist, however, I only have the students 1/2 hour a day and I feel like I don't have enough time. When do you have them graph everything?
I too, only have my students for 30 minutes a day. They graph attendance daily, vocabulary monthly and sight words and phrases weekly...but I stagger, so student A goes on Mondays, student B on Tuesdays, etc. Once they start they will never let you forget. ;-)
