What educators are saying

I love this product! I've done status of the class for years now. This is such a helpful tool to keep track of what my students are reading.
This pairs well with our new reading program and offers a nice way to keep in touch with students and their reading.

Taking “status of the class” and recording anecdotal reading notes during independent reading time is one of my favorite parts of the school day.

This is a time when I conduct a mini-conference with each child…a time to record what they are reading…to celebrate accomplishments…to ask questions…to ask about home reading…to make book recommendations…for other students to hear about books other students are reading—and more!

The entire process takes less than 10 minutes but gives me a HUGE amount of information that helps me guide instruction and helps students reflect on their own reading behaviors and goals.

This product contains pages of directions that clearly explain (includes photos) how I use this calendar "system" in my classroom to track student reading, to track my anecdotal records, and to monitor student growth. I also give information about using these calendars for yearly planning in literacy.

Included are directions, blank calendars in color and black/white, an anecdotal record form, 2 different binder cover/spine options, and more! This "system" will get your reading records organized for your entire school year.

Now, use DIGITALLY with Google Slide access as well!

No need to purchase year to year--just check back for updates each summer and download the new ones!

***What are teachers saying about this resource?***

"This has got to be one of my all-time favorite and most helpful resources from TpT! My students look forward to sharing their reading update and I love how quick and easy it is to find reading patterns. I use it as a check in at the beginning of each small group, rather than whole class. SO GREAT!"

"This has been the most useful resource in monitoring my students' independent reading progress. It has increased accountability and motivation! Thank you!"

"As a new intermediate teacher, I was struggling to figure out how to track student reading! This resource was a perfect way to keep track of where everyone was and to encourage and keep track of those who were struggling. Thank you!"
