Since the focus is turning more to growth instead of a certain score, or being on grade level, I created an i-Ready "Growth" tracking page for younger students. After each Growth Monitoring or Diagnostic test, they can keep track of whether they have grown by coloring the plant that matches their level of growth.
Hopefully the visual of the seed growing into a flower will help them realize if they are growing and moving forward or not. I feel it is so important to help students learn early on that they have a responsibility for their learning as well.
These can be printed and put into a book before school starts so that the students can manage their own "Data Notebooks"!
