Include this data tracker as a part of your students' data binders to help them track their words read per minute. Students record their growth by coloring in the bar graph each month according to their WPM score. The next step is to have students create a new goal for the following month. I help students select a new goal and either mark it with a star sticker or a quick hand-drawn star. I have students use a new color each month to really highlight the growth made.
