Reader's Notebook: Sticky Note Tracker Sheet

By Beth Newingham on December 3, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

In addition to IDR Task Sheets, students also keep a Sticky Note Tracker Sheet in the Reading Response section of their Reader's Notebooks. There are other times when I just want them to write about their reading on sticky notes as they make their way through their books. I tell my students to "talk back" to their books as they read. Whenever they talk back to their book, they leave a sticky note on that page.

Although I confer with students often, I can't be there with them during every book they read. For this reason, I ask them to take the sticky notes out of their books when they are done and attach them to a "Sticky Note Tracker Sheet" that is then added to their Reader's Notebook.

This way I can see the thinking that is taking place on a regular basis and use it as a tool to guide my individual conversations and necessary instruction with specific students.

Great idea, I love it. I should try to my students.
