Student Driven Data

A bit ago in my Bright Ideas Blog Post... I referred to my student goal sheets.
I received many, many comments through email and TPT to share a bit more... so I hope this helps.

We call them Student Driven Data.
Basically, we fill them out each Monday morning.
We check the progress on our term goals in 4 various activities.
Reading Skills is a FABULOUS product (created my dear friend... I'm convincing her to open a TPT store and post it... I'll keep you posted!!) They practice their phonics, fluency, comprehension, grammar etc.
Another area is Reading Wheel.  This is new for us.  We've been using AR for YEARS and next year... it will not be funded ;(   We decided to continue our reading routine but instead of counting AR points... each student will be required to read 2 books from the various genre forms.  We are creating a small booklet for the 16 books (per term) for students to complete after reading the book.
PIG Math is all about math fact memorization.  Some say "don't do it!"  I say "do it now"! Get those facts memorized in a quick, fun way!
Math Probe is a school wide math assessment we give our students each week.  It is 2 minutes on a Friday and exciting to see their progress on grade specific skills they need to know.  (Fuchs and Fuchs is the author)

Each week we use a different color crayon to color in our weekly progress.
They go home in the homework folder and reviewed with mom and dad.
This way they are aware of how their child is progressing toward their term goals (marked with a star).  There are no surprises at report card and conference time.
Parents have commented very positively about this sheet!
Parents sign each week and we repeat the process until the end of the term!


My sweet co-worker (I love my team... I'm so lucky!!) shared a great idea to put the student goal on the sheet also since we are looking at it so often.  Sometimes the district forms don't get seen too often.

Such a great idea! I'm hoping to do something like this next year in 3rd grade :)

I'd love to see your booklet for the genre wheel once it's done. Our school wasn't able to use AR this year and I've found it difficult to not only get kids to finish the books they start, but also to select books at an appropriate reading level.
