Readminster to track progress over time.

Students reflect on what they need to learn and set specific goals related to chapters of Bond Blocks activities using the Student Reflection and Goal Setting sheet. 

Use the PowerPoint to help adminster the test consistently to all students. The PowerPoint reads each question to the student, freeing the teacher to observe and record student responses.
