This TeachersPayTeachers resource may only cost $5.00, but the amount of stress it helps you avoid is priceless! It is completely editable, and it includes monthly calendars, annual review, reevaluation, and initial referral dates sheets, skill mastery charts, caseload checklists, a log for the services you provide for each of your students (my personal favorite), and SO MUCH MORE!
The Qualitative Reading Inventory is an amazing reading assessment that I use at the beginning, middle, and end of the school year. It allows me to determine my students' independent and instructional reading level, as well as identify their accuracy, reading rate, explicit and implicit comprehension levels, as well as determine how well they can identify sight words at various grade levels. It is also a great assessment to use for gathering data for IEPs. Article: FREE, Book & CD: $24.80
