Like any teacher, I do a lot of progress monitoring. One of the things that I track is the standards that we complete in third grade. In order to do this efficiently, I created excel sheets with all of the third grade standards based on the Common Core and the Iowa Core. I have the pages divided into math, reading, and writing/speaking on my clipboard. As we go through the standards, I put the students’ scores (usually based on our school’s scoring: 1-beginning, 2-developing, and 3- meeting) in the boxes under the standard. This is easy to do when it comes to reading and math since our district has developed many CFAs for the standards. When it comes to writing, I do things a
little differently. We have 3 published pieces that we score throughout the year (an opinion, informative, and narrative), which I am able to enter the scores for under the corresponding standard. For the rest of the writing and speaking standards, I simply check off as we complete the standards. Check out my TPT store to get the free excel sheets.
