MY CLASSROOM QUICK TIPThis week I'm sharing how I organize my running records. I tried using a binder, but it just wasn't working for me organization-wise. I kept finding random running records all over my classroom. So instead I headed to Walmart during Back to School shopping season and bought 25-30 orange two-pocket folders. Each student has a folder where I store the running records and their progress form:
|Each student has their own folder.|
|Inside the folder.|
|On the left side I keep their progress form. This form travels from grade to grade, and teachers record every running record done with the child.|
|On the right side I keep all the running records I've done with the child throughout the year.|
WHY THIS WORKS FOR ME:
- I can easily insert or take out running records. I don't have to worry about hole punching them or prying open a sheet protector to get them inside.
- If I was headed to an IEP, parent meeting, or another meeting about a specific student, all I have to do is grab their folder. No need to haul a binder.
- During Running Record Season (for me that's 4 times a year), I can visually see who's done and who I still need to test. When I'm done testing a student, I move their folder to the back of my running record crate.
SOME GOOD NEWS!
I FINISHED MY RUNNING RECORDS FOR THE YEAR!!! WOOOO ME!!! It's not even June yet and I'm D.O.N.E! I think this is record time for me! :D
