Not your typical Monday around here but here's to tomorrow being a little smoother.
About a week or so ago I posted a question on my FB page about how you share/show data in your classroom. Well I received a few responses but still concerned/confused, whatever, over how to show it.
We are required to show data on a bulletin board or some type of display for our student's growth. I'm skeptical about showing kids names, so we can use the number system, but some of my kids can't even recognize names, so I know numbers will be a loss. Not only that, some of my kiddos will pick up quick on who is who.
So I thought of "I Can" charts--ya know..."I Can" tie my shoes, "I Can" count to 100, etc. etc. But it still has be in a graph form and has to be 1 reading skill and 1 math skill for each 9 weeks.
The problem is---I'm such a visual person that this is blowing my mind. And I have no idea why?!? I get the graph, I get how to display and I pretty much get which standards that I could show...for example...this 9 weeks I could graph how many students can read color words and how many kids can count to 25.
But how do I graph it---withOUT using students' names??
Any suggestions on what you do?? Help please!
And to my EC teachers out there---how would you display? My EC resource friend is overwhelmed on how to display her data b/c each student has an IEP that--of course---is completely different from the next.
On to something totally different before my head explodes---Whimsy Workshop is having the most A-MAZE-ING giveaway!!!!!!! Click on the pic to enter!! I not so secretly hope I win! :)
