Each students has their number on a bulletin board. They are responsible for knowing their number and utilizing the board. I have a bin of different colored post-it notes. Each color represents the book a student is reading. For example, if a student is on their first book for the marking period...they will need a blue post-it note. If a student is on their second book for the marking period, they will need a green post-it note, so on and so forth. Students are responsible for writing the following information on the post-it note: their name, book title, book level, book points, and date. Once a student has taken the quiz, they take down their post-it note, write their quiz score on the back, leave the post-it note on my table, and fill out their new post-it note for the correct corresponding book.
This whole process may seem a little daunting, but students really do well being independent and making sure they are using the correct post-it notes while holding themselves accountable. :)
I just started this process, and I'm thinking about creating a simpler card that students can fill out. A problem I'm running into is making sure I have enough post-it notes and a variety of colors for those fast readers!
I'll keep you posted on the progress of this idea. My good friend/fellow teacher has another idea in mind. It's a great poster that she created! She'll be implementing it soon! We're excited to see how these ideas will help students' success with Accelerated Reader.
Here's my board that I incorporated into my OWL theme...
