Data notebooks have gained popularity in recent years. These notebooks are full of forms where students set goals and chart their progress. This data notebook packet is specific to the Common Core Standards because it gives you a page to note progress on each standard.
This resource is broken into three sections:
Section 1: Goal Setting
– Students can set long and short term goals.
Use the long term goals sheet only at the beginning of the year, or when first creating your notebooks.
Short term goals sheets are provided which allow your students to set goals monthly, weekly and even daily. Each short term goal sheet allows students to set goals for math, ELA and then a general goal, which could be used for behavior, social skills, science, social studies or any other topic you cover. Use the goal sheets that work best in your classroom. You do not have to use them all.
Section 2: Common Core Standards Progress
- Students can record their progress on each Common Core Standard in Math and ELA. The standards are written in a generalized, kid-friendly way at the top of each page. The words may not include every idiosyncrasy of the standard, but covers the broad strokes.
Each standard is on a separate sheet, but many activities will cover multiple standards. Students can mark their progress on each individual standard sheet, as it is covered. Their progress on these sheets can be marked based on assessments, exit tickets, in class assignments, projects, or any other activity that shows their level of mastery of that standard.
Behind each sheet, students should include work samples that “prove” their scores and progress.
Section 3: Standardized Assessments Progress
- Students can record their progress on different standardized assessments that schools use. In this section, I have included pages for the different standardized assessments that I have used in my multiple years as an educator.
These notebooks make a wonderful vehicle for student-led conferences. Students can share their work and their progress with their parents in their own words simply by taking them through this notebook.
