There have been a lot of great ideas floating around out there for tracking student progress. I loved the idea of having my students keep a Data Folder to record their weekly scores. To try and make the whole process less "blah" for my kids, I made my folders dinosaur-themed! A little clip art and word play sure goes a long way with youngsters! :) My kids have actually loved using their folders so far this year! I created goal sheets to include in the folder, where the students and I both write in achievement goals for the quarter (i.e. earn an 85% or higher on reading tests, add more details to sentences when writing, earn five 100%'s in a row on spelling tests, etc.). Keeping my students involved and aware of their grades/goals has proven to be very helpful and motivating for them!
