Student Recording Sheet Freebie
Happy Freebie Friday, friends!
We cannot believe that we are already in December! This year feels like that is has been going by so quickly.
For this week's #FreebieFriday we wanted to pass along our Student Recording Form.
With any kind of literacy instruction, it is important to be taking data. This form was made to help you do just that! It is comprehensive enough to hit on multiple components of your lesson.
What does the recording form include?
When using this form, you will have students filling it out as you progress through it. It has a place for everything. Below, we have outlined the different components and how we suggest using them.
At the top of the page you will find a row of boxes. We recommend having students place some sort of manipulative (colored chips, cubes, etc.) in a separate square for every sound they hear in a word. As you give them directions to manipulate the sounds, they can then switch the manipulative.
This is an excellent way to incorporate a multi-sensory component to your lesson.
For more information on Phonological Awareness, check out our blog “The Facts About Phonological Awareness that May Surprise You.”
Under the grid you will find the section for the Auditory Drill. Here we have given you ten lines. For this activity, give your student a sound and have them write down all of the letter or letter combinations that can make that sound on each line. To learn more about the auditory drill and to see it in action, click here to go to “Why the Auditory Drill is a Crucial Part of your Lesson.”
The next section provides you with lines to do your review spelling practice.
Systematic review is key.
You always want to make sure that you go back and review previously instructed concepts and check for retention.
On the three lines provided, have your student write the phonogram, while saying the letter names and what the phonogram says. For example, if you were working on the phonogram ‘ck,’ the students should write ‘ck’ on all three lines, while simultaneously saying “c, k, says /k/.”
This is another excellent way to incorporate multisensory learning into your lesson, and it primes the student for the subsequent spelling task.
The new word section of the sheet is where students can write their spelling words for that lesson.
In spelling you were working on the word level. After that task is complete, you will want to take your students to the sentence level. The back of the recording form has space for the student to write three sentences. It also has boxes there so that the student can check for COPS. This is our editing acronym that stands for Capitalization, Organization, Punctuation and Spelling.
