Knowing exactly which informational text skills each student in your classroom needs to learn, is the key to providing the best reading instruction possible. This resource has been created to help you make decisions based on real data that reflects what your students do, and do not know about the 10 informational text standards in the third grade curriculum. This will allow teachers to place students in guided reading groups that will provide the instruction best suited to each student.

This resource is divided into two sections:
1. Documentation forms to help you track student progress in all informational text standards in the curriculum
