You will LOVE using this product with your students. It is simple to use and HIGHLY effective in raising reading levels, increasing math sense and improving year-end test scores. THIS NOTEBOOK DRAMATICALLY IMPROVES STUDENT LEARNING!!
There are many Data notebooks out there to track simple data; however, our notebook was created by first identifying the MOST ESSENTIAL SKILLS kindergarteners need to know in order to be successful readers and develop a strong math sense. Those skills are mastered and tracked throughout the year in our data notebook.
Because these essential skills are so critical to future success, they are not simply passed off, but mastered!! Each skill includes a FLUENCY PIECE that continues to spiral throughout subsequent skills. For example: the sight words tested on skill #5 will also reappear in the fluency test for skill #6 and so on. This leads to true mastery and dramatically improves student learning.
PLUS - We have included a WORKABLE VERSION of the reading skills sheet, flachcard file, and testing sheets so you can change the sight words to meet your needs.
This product has HIGH student buy-in as students watch their progress climb on the butterfly tracking meter. Students are often heard saying, "I only have one more caterpillar until I reach my goal." "I only have 4 more skills until I reach the butterfly." They WANT to practice at home. The WANT to pass off skills. They LOVE tracking and sharing their progress!!
PLUS, this download comes with a SUPER SIMPLE approach to kindergarten HOMEWORK, giving parents everything they need to help their student practice those skills that are most important! No more finding and pulling worksheets. Students are no longer doing homework that is either above or below their current ability level. ALL students spend valuable homework time working on skills that are exactly on their level.
