This is a cute template I use along with the new Lucy Calkins writing units. It is a graphic organizer so that students can keep their work need. I introduce it during session 5. (Each bullet is actually polka dotted.)
Use this 3-page checklist to keep track of which skills each of your students have mastered. By using this list (based off of Lucy Calkins' TCRWP) you will know when a student is ready to move up to the next guided reading level. I have this checklist printed for each student in my conferring binder.
