This item is a 135-page ready-to-use document for teachers to monitor their student’s progress across the Literacy Continuum (Cluster 1: Prior to School) for all 8 of the critical aspects. The checklists in this document is based on the expectations for students in the year prior to the Foundation Year of school, as described in the Australian ‘Literacy Continuum’ and the Australian Curriculum.
How to use this document:
This has been created as a printable ready-to-use document for teachers to monitor their student’s progress across the Literacy Continuum (Cluster 1: Prior to School) for all critical aspects.
The ‘at-a-glance’ list allows the teacher to track student achievement against Cluster 1. Teachers can list their student’s names on the following page, to create an ‘at-a-glance’ list of their students and whether they have mastered all of the elements of Cluster 1.
The student achievement graph templates allow the teacher to create a bar graph to track class data at an individual element level, enabling them to identify any whole-class weaknesses or strengths at a point in time. This allows the teacher to track the progression of whole-class student achievement over time. To identify individual student progress on the graph, the teacher could write the student’s name in the next space on the graph when they show competence at a standard.
Teachers can then use the comprehensive checklist on the remaining pages to monitor and record anecdotal notes of their student’s progress through the Cluster 1 checklist. The numbers on the ‘at-a-glance’ table correspond to the checklist boxes, to allow teachers to easily track specific students.
EDITED 14/01/17: An Individual Student Checklist page has been added at the end of the document, to track a student’s progress in all critical aspects on one page. This could be used in addition to, or instead of, the comprehensive checklist sections pages.
