I use this as a way to check-in daily with my readers. It allows me to do a quick check each morning to see who is and is not making progress on their reading. I can then do quick conferences to find out why they may have stalled in their reading. I can also monitor book level to be certain they are reading books at their independent level.
This is a Power Point Presentation. One of the slides allows for adding students' names digitally. You could even add more text boxes to use this as a digital form for record-keeping. The second form is blank and would be easy to print out to keep a paper copy. I keep it on a clipboard near my desk to be able to write down quickly each morning.
This can also be used for writing status! Drafting, Editing, Peer-to-peer, etc.
Students will be held accountable as they know they will be monitored on a routine basis.
