I have created 4 editable templates to help track student growth on a scale towards the quarterly Kindergarten Commoncore goals for Phonics, Reading, Writing, Numbers, and Shapes. Included are:
1 blank Goal chart template
1 Goal chart for Kindergarten Quarter 1 standards
2 Goal charts for Kindergarten Quarter 2 standards
So how can these charts be used to track student growth? I sit down with students after they have met each goal (after using an assessment or exit slip) and date the box, then the student colors the box. By the end of the quarter your students have a graph that shows their growth over time.
I also send these charts home so parents can see the goals for each quarter. PLEASE NOTE: This is a zip file and these are .docx files, please make sure your program is compatible.
