grades on assignments, tests, student notes, and projects. I also use
the checklists to record scores on district assessments.
many classes, we work in guided groups during reading and math (the
math part is new for me this year!). Keeping checklists has enabled me
to track all aspects of my small group instruction.
I use many of the same checklists for writing as in the other subjects, along with some other special sheets to track various parts of the writing process:
Keeping these lists has helped me know exactly where each student is, as well as what still needs to be done.
