Product Description
Status of the Class is a tool that I use in my classroom to engage, reinforce, and monitor my students’ reading habits.

Here’s how it works my classroom...

- I keep a binder full of “Status of the Class” forms for each of my students. At the top of each page I record their names.
- During our independent reading time, I flip through the pages and call out each student’s name, one at a time. When I call their names, they pause their book to tell me the title of the book they are reading and what page they are on. I record the date, title, and page number. If a student is reading the same book as the day before, then I only record the date and the page number. (This helps speed things along!)
- If a student has completed a book since the previous day, then I record an “F” for “Finished”. Likewise, I record a “Q” if a student has “Quit” a book.
I repeat this process {almost} daily.
- All in all, this process takes about 5-8 minutes for me to get through all 33 of my students. In the beginning it takes a bit longer. But once students are used to the routine, it’s a breeze!

6 Reasons Why I Use Status of the Class....

1. I always know what my students are reading.
2. I can track my students' reading habits.
3. My students are held accountable.
4. It gives me the opportunity to reinforce and provide feedback.
5. It opens up communication about reading.
6. My students love it!!

I learned about this amazing idea from the book, The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller. Her book is a great source for fostering a love of reading in your classroom.
