Student data tracking is becoming a more important part of the classroom. Use this free collection of binder pages to make data easier to manage.
As showing student growth has become an important aspect of teaching, creating student data binders or folders is becoming more common. We have updated our previous collection of forms and expanded their reach.
The wide variety of forms we have included should help you begin to pull together meaningful folders or binders for student data tracking.
As a teacher you might decide to have students be responsible for tracking their own data or you might be in charge of tracking data and share with your students when appropriate. The decision is yours depending on the purpose of having data folders in your room.
Choose the appropriate forms depending on your goals. These folders can be used as important pieces of a parent teacher conference or for evidence of successful strategies during PLCs. They are also an important part of helping students set and reach goals. If you have suggestions for additional forms, please share below.
For this collection, we are providing the PowerPoint and PDF versions so you may edit as needed.
We have a commercial use license for KG Fonts but you will need the following fonts downloaded on your computer if you plan on editing the PowerPoint version: Janda Closer to Free and KG Primary Penmanship.
Notes about some of the included pages:
Student Mission Statements Have students begin the year by writing their own mission statements. Use the first form to help students make notes and form their ideas. They can then create a poem like mission statement by transferring their ideas to the outline form.
Long Term Goal Setting- Reading Use our graphs for student goal setting. Pick the system you use and copy one for each student. Students color in the bar graph to show their current level. During a reading conference, set a goal with students for the following month. Mark the goal with a colored line. At the end of each month, have students update their goal sheet with the current level.
100s Chart: This form can be used for math facts or Fry words. After taking a 100 problem timed test, students can color the number of problems they answered correctly. The following month they can choose a different color to color in their new total. The same can be done with a list of 100 Fry Words.
RTI Forms: You will find forms that are designed to help you plan and track interventions in the classroom.
Reflection Forms: These include simple forms with faces to color in for younger students and more in depth forms that involve more writing for older students.
You might also choose to add colorful covers for your students. You can find some of ours here: Editable Binder Covers.
You will find conferencing forms, running record forms and other reading workshop materials here: Reading Management Binder.
You might choose to include calendar pages to document growth. Different versions are available here: Printable Calendar Pages.
You will find Fry Word checklists for monitoring student Fry Word progress here: Fry Word Checklists.
We have also created Fry Boxes for students to self assess their Fry Word knowledge. These can be found here: Fry Word Checks.
If your state still uses Common Core, you may also add our “I Can” Checkboxes to data folders: Everything “I Can” Common Core.
