I could never find the perfect data tracking system. Then, I relaized that there is no perfect one way of doing it. Depending on your lesson or activity, it may require a different type of data tracking tool. So, here is what is included:
- A parent Teacher conference essential notes for each child and subject, where you write in any notes that the parent should be aware of for each subject.
- A Data tracking sheet where you can type in the names of students who are at a table. This is my favorite, as you can quickly observe independent work at a table and jot down any noticings and concerns for specific students.
- A data tracking grid, based on rug spots for students. This is especially helpful during Math lessons where you use whiteboards. If they are struggling with fluency or throughout the mini lesson, you can quickly jot your notes down by looking at where they sit on the rug and write it down on their grid spot on this sheet.
- A tracking sheet helpful for Reading and Writing, based on the Research, compliment, teaching point, and next step structure for conferences. This is also structured by table so that when it is time for conferences, I can focus on completing one table on a certain day, to ensure all students are being met with and taking anecdotals about the conference.
