I Can...Student Trackers (and some BIG *news*)

Oh has it been busy!!

What have I been up to?


(New Orleans Skyline - my trip to the GOTR Summit)

And this...

(Cleaning, de-cluttering, and **PACKING**)

And this...

(2 back-to-back weekend trips to Rhode Island for -gasp- house hunting)

Plus teaching, professional development(s), interviewing, mom duties, and all other life roles.

Yes! You read that correctly - InterViewing!!! BooHoo!!

Good news is - our house sold in 5 days!!!

Never would have dreamed that would happen.

Now we are busy making plans for a move to the Rhode Island/Massachusetts area - where this weekend they are having a blizzard with around 24 inches of snow!! How ever will I adjust to this kind of weather?!? Yikes!!

Okay, on to more important, school related news!

I have created a new "I Can...Student Tracker" packet available on TpT. It includes several student tracking sheets with a graphing section. Click here to see my previous post on "I Can..." statements.

My students love getting out their clipboards and documenting their scores. They love comparing their new scores to previous ones. I try to give pretests and then a post-test.

Here are some of the responses my class made about student trackers:

As you can see they feel empowered and so smart when they get to compare a pre and post test! I love using the forms for formative assessment/exit tickets. I can see their work, their self-evaluations, and I can make personalized comments all in one spot.

It has been a big hit in my classroom and hope you can use it too!

I will give one packet away by random drawing on Monday, Feb. 11 - just comment below and don't forget to leave me an email address!

Stay tuned for more news on this *BIG* adventure event move (tear, tear).


  1. Wow that is a big move! I don't think I would like all the cold weather either. On the good side they probably get lots snow, here in Oklahoma, we got lots of ice and sleet. Congrats on the quick sale of your home. I hope you find a new one just right for you and your family in Rhode island.

  7. Hi Angie,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
