This is a recording sheet I use to track my students' reading level throughout the year. I can quickly see which students are at benchmark and I can get an overall feeling for how well my class is doing. This recording sheet makes forming reading level groups quicker and easier. As students gain reading levels, I color in the graph to match. I included four spots to record reading levels for various points in the year.
