Papers, Papers, Papers. It seems like that's all I have everywhere in my room! The last thing I wanted was another set of 24 papers for anecdotal records to carry around or sort through as I was taking notes.
Here is a set of three forms. One for behavior, one for math, and one for writing. Each form is condensed and allows for 24 students to be on one page. (No more writing on Post-its and sticking them to one page only to find out they are sticking everywhere but your paper!) You can write the child's name in the top of the box and your observations, teaching points, reminders, etc. in the box below their name. The forms hold information for 24 students. Simply enter your student's names, print out the form and attach to a clipboard or folder. You can transfer your data at a later point. I write short hand (and small). If I need to, I write on the back of the page for the occasions I need more room.
I included on each sheet an example of how to fill out the form. The math one has two options that I included examples for. 1. You record information for a particular child. 2. You label the boxes with skills and then list the students who need additional support with these skills in the boxes for quick reference. Just delete the examples before typing.
Also, if you are unfamiliar with Excel, these are on 3 sheets. Simply click the bottom tab labeled with the form you would like and it will pull it up for you.
