Two products - One for students to use to keep track of their reading and one for teachers to use to keep track of their students' reading.
Monthly Status of the Class:
Comes in two versions - Editable (or non-editable) Whole Group version OR Individual Student version
Status of the Class is a product that stems from Donalyn Miller's "The Book Whisperer". It is a quick check in with your students to keep track of their reading once or twice a week. It helps to see if students:
- What students are reading each week
- Abandon books often
- Are reading books above/below their independent reading level
- Fake Reading
- Not reading at all
Depending on class size, this quick check in can take between 3- 5 minutes. Simply call the students name and they will tell you what book they are reading, page they are on and/or if they have finished or abandoned a book.
This product is used to complement the Status of the Class. Students have a monthly sheet where they record:
- The book they are reading
- Page they are on
- New book, Abandoned Book or Finished Book
This allows the students to be ready and prepared with their progress when you want to complete the Status of the Class. There are also four lines on the bottom where students can record the books they finished throughout the month.
