Data folders are a great way for students to assume accountability for their own learning. But finding one that exactly suits your needs can be tricky. This is especially true with tracking sight words.
Perhaps your classroom uses the Fry list, or the Dolch list. Maybe your district has a list that is taken from your reading series or another source. You might even have to test certain words at a certain time. This Editable Sight Word Data Folder addresses these problems. Because you can edit the words- it will work with any word list.
Whether you prefer to test by the 9 weeks, every 6 weeks, or have no time frame at all, there are sheets that will help your students track their own learning.
This Editable Sight Word Data folder contains:
* Black & White and Color Cover sheets (or use them as dividers)
* Word stars for 9 week, 6 week, on non-specified time periods
* Graphs for students to track their progress (25, 50, 100, and
* A goal setting sheet so that you can help your student make a
* Black & White and Color Certificates to celebrate student
Simply decide which sheets you need, edit, print, and make copies for your students.
In my classroom I use data folders to discuss student progress with parents, and to help the students see their own learning progress and needs.
Even students as young as my kindergartners can use these with minimal supervision. I usually use a highlighter to dot the stars they will be coloring in and draw a rectangle around their graphing data. Then I let the students take the folder to the side and color in their page(s).
