Empowering Kinders! And Other Kids Too! is having a goal setting with early learners linky party and I have decided to join the party!
We have data notebook we use with our students. Each student has their own data notebook that they are assessed once a month. We use a different color highlighter each month to mark the items they know. For example, yellow for September and blue for October and so on. I make a pie chart to display the data on in our data center bulletin board using the Graph Club program on our computers. For example, if we are doing counting to 100 I would set up ranges 1-25 (red), 26-50 (yellow), 51-75 (green) and 76-100 (blue). The pie chart does not show student's names, just how many students fall into each range. Above each pie chart I place our goal. The kids love how we work as a class to try and make the entire circle blue. I set individual goals with each child.
I wish I had some data center pictures with me but I don't. I do have a copy of "Our Goal" that goes above each of the pie chart on the data center bulletin board as well as my data notebook to share with you.
