Our district is moving towards personalized learning. This school year the high school will be transitioning a few classes. Elementary teachers are starting to prep our students by making them more accountable for their own learning.
After a few days of training and learning about how to use our NWEA MAPs score, I wanted a way to keep track of student goals as well as have them participate in their goal making.
When I looked through available resources, I really liked the idea of lapbooks! None of the books available had exactly what I wanted to track with my 3rd and 4th graders.
You know what I did next…
I made my own goals lapbook!!
This lapbook includes:
- MAPs goals and scores for Fall, Winter, and Spring.
- Lexile score and a list of books they want to read during the year.
- S.M.A.R.T. goal tracking on 3 x 5 cards.
- Pockets for interventions (to try, tried, still using)
- Weekly check in for 32 weeks (students mark if they have worked a little on their goals, not at all, or definitely worked on them!)
- Instructions for creating the lapbook and photos for layout.
I’m super excited to go over these with my students and have them decorate their goals lapbooks after they finish putting them together.
Now I just need to finish marking my classroom library books with their Lexile numbers. I didn’t think I had so many books until I started labeling them *grin*
Happy New School Year!!
