Anecdotal notes Sometimes you notice things that your students are doing, but you're not doing a running record on them...but you need to remember to address it. I just keep a stack of sticky notes on my desk and jot down the problem. Then, I stick it on their tab in the binder on this little printable:
use address labels, clipboard, and large index cards. Write your notes on the address labels as you walk around and observe. Later, stick them onto the child's index card. Quick and easy! Then, during parent/teacher conferences, just pull out the notecard and share your observations
create something like this for math journals to record their fact assessment data or in their reading journals for story test, wol, adventures in writing data, etc.
