Tracking data has become a small obsession of mine. I love to see the improvements that my students are making. I like being able to show my students, parents and administrators just how much they have learned.
In my classroom I use my Data Binders and Corresponding Data Wall to show student progress.
I also use Marsha Mcguire's Ball Words to track my students sight word/popcorn word knowledge. My students love to see their names moving from ball to ball.
I hope that you found something that you can use in your classroom!
