Reading, Student-centered

There’s A Sheet for That – Readers Workshop Sheets to Help You

image from icanread

Being in a more formal reader’s workshop format this year has meant that I have needed a better method of keeping track of all of the one-on-one and small group conferences I am having constantly.  So as always, I thought why not share what I have created with the world.  Mind you that I tweak these as I use them so if you really love a form you may want to keep a copy of it before I change it.

We do a modified 40 book challenge for the year.  Here is the sheet explaining the rules and also keep track of their books.

How Am I as a Reader.  I started out the year by asking students how they were as readers, these were the base for our first conference.

Reading Parent Survey (borrowed from Colby Sharp).  A few weeks into school i ask the students to fill this out with their parents.

Calendar of one-on-one conferences: This idea is adapted from the The 2 Sisters, I also have a pensive where I keep all of this.  Now I can see at a glance who I have met with. by putting the conference date in the small check boxes.

One-on-one student conference sheet.  I needed somewhere to keep all of my thoughts and this is what has helped me.

Reading Log.  I have been asked for students to keep a reading log so this is our modified, in room use only, reading log that the students fill out every day after they have read independently.

Small Group Conference  Calendar sheet.  I pull a lot of small groups to quick hit on skills with them but I needed a separate way to keep track of when I did it.  This sheet is helping me keep track of them.

Small Group Conference Sheet.  This is a conference sheet specifically for a child in a small group setting, I needed the distinction between one-on-one and small group so I created this.

Monthly Reading Reflection Sheet.  I have students do shorter weekly reflections about their progress and goal but at the end of the month I have them do a longer reflection more centered on reading.  Here is September’s.

I hope this useful to you, I know it is helping me stay sane and on top of all of my diverse readers and their passion.

I am a passionate (female) 5th grade teacher in Wisconsin, USA, proud techy geek, and mass consumer of incredible books. Creator of the Global Read Aloud Project, Co-founder of EdCamp MadWI, and believer in all children. I have no awards or accolades except for the lightbulbs that go off in my students’ heads every day.  First book “Passionate Learners – Giving Our Classroom Back to Our Students Starting Today” will be released this fall from PLPress.   Follow me on Twitter @PernilleRipp.
