I keep this checklist in my anecdotal notes and I use highlighters to mark their beginning of year starting point and end of year goals. I help my students set goals for how many levels they should grow at the beginning of the year each year. I use this to keep track of students' reading levels from B-U. Once a student has shown "independence" on a reading level, I check the box.
This also comes in super handy to help communicate with an assistant or volunteer what level students are on so they can assist them in finding just-right books!
I hope you find this helpful!! Thanks for downloading!
