I learned about this style of data collection when I was teaching in England, and then saw it again when I was teaching in Australia. I talked to more and more international teachers and discovered this is what the rest of the world is doing!

It will make collecting student data easier. Students can reflect on past lessons. You have "scrapbook-like" notebooks to show at conferences. You will save time and paper.

But it is a different way of thinking (scroll down to read more*)

This download includes:

-30 pages of directions and ideas (as I wish it would have been explained to me when I first started teaching in England)

-10 printables to use in notebooks

-picture examples

This manual concentrates mainly on Literacy and Math.......but I will upload my Science & Social Studies printables soon.

What others are saying:

"I used this when I was new to elementary. It was very helpful!" -Sheila B.

"This may sound dramatic, but you have CHANGED MY LIFE. Overnight, my entire teaching philosophy has changed! (For the better!) I was drowning in papers to grade, discouraged about the students accountability, and on the verge of a FREAK OUT. I am so thankful for this system. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! P.S. My students are enjoying it, too!" -Kara C.

"I love this way of teaching and of a meaningful showing of kids' work/progress! Thank you!"

*So..... what is it?

All independent work is recorded directly into notebooks, or if done on a worksheet, work is glued into the notebooks.

WHAT?! Read on...

My resources are all you need to PRINT & GO.

The objective and brief directions are at the top of each page and then printables that will save you so much time and paper. These ARE NOT worksheets. These resources are graphic organizer titles, activities that children will cut/mix up/use dice with/glue/etc and ideas for you! These are designed for notebooks that are 8 1/2 x 11 journals....if yours are smaller you will need to reduce when copying to fit your books.

What I hope you will enjoy most is the DIFFERENTIATION I’ve included for you. I know that we have students that are behind, on-level or advanced. My resources are layered as much as possible (that’s why there’s so many pages in many of my packs) so that you have choices for your students. There is no reason they should all be doing the same thing when they are at different levels. Please also note the PICTURE EXAMPLES. This is a great visual to better understand how it might look in the notebooks.
