I created this checklist to be able to easily keep track of where each of my middle school students are in meeting the new ELA Common Core Standards. On this spreadsheet is a separate sheet for each grade, 6th through 8th. You can type or hand write student names at the top of each page. To fit enough columns for 25 students, I've formatted it to be landscape on a legal size paper. I've left it in excel format so you can customize it for your needs and number of students.
