I made this "Student Self-Monitoring Reading Notebook Data Logs"
are in color and black and white; they're half a page each making them great for students to self monitor their growth.
I cut out and allow students to glue these data logs into their interactive Reading notebooks so that throughout the year...
- they become responsible for their own learning
- they're monitoring their own Lexile and WPM growth
- they set their own Lexile and WPM goals
- they track their own progress
You'll start to see your students gaining confidence and motivation, as well as, growth in their learning! It really is remarkable what a good data log or data wall can do for students' self-esteem.
This way, though, students are aware and are tracking their progress in privacy.
