Data notebooks are a great tool to help students take responsibility throughout the school year. In my classroom, we set up our notebooks at the beginning of the year and check-in weekly throughout the year. These notebooks also make a great addition to student-led conferences.
This product is the 4th version to my first data notebook posted ***HERE. The only difference between the notebooks is the theme.

In my classroom, I use these at the end of the year. Throughout the year, I save one writing a month and in June, I bind all the pages with a cover and a back sheet. The kids who didn’t buy yearbooks use the blank back sheet as an autograph page for their friends on the last day of school.
(This page is generic so students can use it to track any kind of data. Some of the things my students have graphed in the past include: unit tests for all subjects, weekly spelling test scores, reading fluency, timed multiplication tests, morning work % correct, monthly/weekly behavior (with percentages based on the # of days out of the month/week they earned their behavior sticker)
These sheets were created for students to illustrate how they use their multiple intelligences (Howard Gardner) in school every day.
My students will add other pages throughout the year as well; such as weekly behavior logs or test score sheets.
There is so much that can be done with a data notebook in elementary classrooms. I found that the more I find ways to incorporate student data-tracking, the more students become aware of their progress and determined to succeed!
