All year I have been trying to think of a way to make data tracking fun and engaging for my students. My students are a lower group this year, so I needed a tracking system that was super easy and super motivating at the same time.
After seeing a cupcake printout in the copy room, I had a great idea to design a tracking system around cupcakes! I worked with my good friend Lacey at The Fabulous Life of an Elementary Teacher and this was born:
I have also included a few options for use depending on how you want to track the data and what point system you use. Here are the options:
I have also included some miscellaneous printables for you to have your kids reflect on their learning and graph their learning at certain intervals.
Here is how I am organizing my data tracking system. Each child has a clear report cover (I purchased a box of 50 for $18.99 at my local office store.). I store these in a special basket in my room to keep them from being torn or misplaced. There are a few more options for organizing and displaying mentioned in the resource.
What system are you using to track data? How are you making engaging and student friendly?
