This is a first grade data tracker that allows your students to track their reading growth, as measured by their TRC assessments, each month. Have your students graph their last progress monitoring level each month. This is an excellent way for students to take ownership of their learning and see the growth they are making. I also enjoy having meaningful discussions with my students about where they are, where they need to be at the end of the year, how far away they are, and what they want their goal to be for the next month. Using a pencil I draw a little star or smiley face wherever they have set their goal so they can be reminded of what they are working toward. It's important to help your students set realistic goals that they are able to reach so that they feel successful and capable.
