I don’t know about you, but the beginning of the school year for me is always chaotic! I am trying to collect paperwork, make sure all my kids eat, send them home at dismissal correctly, communicate with parents, OH and get to know my students both personally and academically! Our plates are definitely full, so I wanted to create an easy and organized data collecting system that would help me know where they were with their letters and letter sounds right off the bat.
This Letter Data System is one of my biggest “Labor of Loves” that I have worked on. It allows me to immediately start testing students at the beginning of the year, have them practice their letters, and involve parents right away by using this system.
The system consists of 5 components:
1. Progress Monitoring Tools
2. Student Ring of Letters System
3. Parent Note
4. Student Letter Data Sheets
5. Letter Data Walls
