This is a handy checklist to use in Guided Reading Groups. Create a folder for each group, insert a checklist for each child. As you group reads in a round-robin style, make notes on their reading using this checklist. The following day when you meet again, make notes underneath. In a few weeks, you will have sheet filled with information on that one child including a record of the books they read. I get my students to answers questions in their writing books. I use this sheet to record information on their written answers too.
This is not an in depth recording method but rather a quick "snapshot" of each child that you can complete during guided reading groups.
