This is something that is a must in any classroom. This file is a data notebook/folder (I have cover pages with both wordings included). It included pages for students, parent, and teacher comments, it monitors student progress in reading level, and sight words. The file also includes sight word cards that can be used in your classroom to monitor student growth. These cards can be taken home and help students to study.
The student, teacher, and parent comments begin in October. This gives you time at the beginning of the year to teach procedures and get parents on board!
