So part of our new evaluation includes a section on tracking student goals and I really struggled with this last year. Obviously I have tons of goals for my kiddos, but we needed something we could assess and see growth with throughout the year. It's supposed to be posted, the kids need to be able to talk about them, identify how they are doing if someone observing asks, etc. Here's my dilemma. Last year we did # of sight words they could read and reading fluency. The problem with that was, some students really struggled with these skills and had no stickers on the chart for months at a time and had to look at the ones who did. I overheard conversations the kids would have with each other, discussing how "Mary" was the smartest kid in the class because she has the most stickers. I don't like those designations to be on their minds-especially so young. So my question is, do you track goals publicly in the classroom and if so, what do you track? Is there a way you do it that has been more successful than my experience?
