This Differentiated Spreadsheet shows kindergarten student needs at a glance. Click a button and let Excel do the work. My coworkers love it because it saves them so much time. I run a Report Sheet to give it to my aide/volunteers and they know exactly which skills to target.
If you would like to see videos of how it works go to:
• Uppercase Letters
• Lowercase Letters
• 1st 25 Fry words
• Numerals 0-20
Each category is color coded for easy reference.
Not only does this spread sheet keep track of students' progress, it provides a report that shows exactly what they need to work on. After mastered material is highlighted, the report eliminates it leaving a spreadsheet with the letters, sounds, high frequency words and numerals yet to be mastered. The students can easily be grouped for targeted instruction.
The spread sheet can also be customized for fit your needs. The original has the letters in alphabetical order. They can easily be changed to the order they are introduced. If you would prefer having the high frequency words from your reading series, they can replace the Fry words.
