By the end of this project, you will have created two graphs to track student growth. The first graph will allow students and teachers to track math computation growth through fact fluency practice. The second graph will allow students to track and celebrate their reading and sight word growth as they advance through different reading levels. As we create these graphs, you will become more confident in how to use Google slides and how to utilize growth graphs in the classroom. As teachers, we strive to develop our students academic skills, but we also prioritize their social and emotional well being. As you use this approach with your students, you will also notice growth in their confidence and growth mindset. Students will be quick to celebrate their success and be equipped to focus on personal achievement rather than peer comparisons. This will also provide you with valuable data to use with parents as you discuss their child’s learning growth at school. *You will need a free Google account for this project.
