Use this word study record to easily keep track of WS groups. I use Words Their Way® with several different groups, so I created this tool to help me keep track of exactly where each group was in the process of word study. Doubles as evidence of differentiation and informal assessment to show admin. Countless teachers have asked me for this form, so here it is :-)
This form allows you to:
Record the date, number, and trait of the sort. Pick which words the students will be tested on as they sort so you can choose the words for individual learning needs (homophones, difficult to pronounce, often misread, etc). Then choose four "challenge" words that students haven't seen yet to determine if they can apply what they've learned. You can fill the form out while they sort, so it's no extra time or work. There is room to keep track of four sorts on each page. I just copy one for each group and I'm set for the month. The Preview File shows exactly how to use the form.
