I'm pretty sure that I want my kids to keep track of their test scores, MAP scores and progress. When I told them their increases in their MAP scores (which made this teacher very happy! :), they got so excited.
I want them to be more responsible for their progress, and strive to do better.
This was my first year doing Notebooks with the kids (and in almost every subject!). I definitely want to use my Math Journals/Notebooks more...We're lucky if we do an entry a month (sad and pathetic!). I also want to have them do the left side reflection like Runde's Room...I think they will get more out of it.
Right now, I only have a 30 minute whole group lesson to cover reading, word work, fluency, writing and grammar! (per our Literacy Series) I definitely want to reorganize better so I am able to teach this better...and I think adding Mentor Sentences will help immensely!
Guided Reading right now is a little haphazard. I'm definitely taking the summer to think about how to plan, and to find/make a plan sheet that works for me. I'm all good on the anecdotal notes, but I want my instruction to be a little more focused!
What will you do differently next year?
