Do you struggle with taking conferring notes or how to use data to group your readers? Make your note-taking life as a teacher 10 times easier! I have created two tools for teachers to use when observing, tracking and planning instruction for student reading fluency.
Both tools look at these 4 elements of fluency: expression, phrasing, smoothness and pace.
Tool #1 is a checklist with 11 different positive habits of good fluent readers. As you listen to a student read, simply check off the things they do well and note next steps. This tool is great for providing feedback to parents, administrators, writing report cards and planning next steps.
Tool # 2 is a grid for grouping students based off of the needs you have observed. Simply list students names in the box or boxes that they need work on. Voila! There are your small groups with teaching area ready to go.
I am in the process of making similar "teacher helpers" for other components of reading. If you like this product please consider following my page so that you can easily find my new products.
