Digital Pensieve - loving the new updates

It has been almost a year since I mentioned the Digital Pensieve. 
I used it a little last year and found it great to use and easy to use but this year I love it even more.

I have just my own grade on it, even though I share a double grade. I love the new features it has. 
I am able to keep track of Reading, Writing, Word Work, Science, Social Studies (here we call it Humanities) and there is an 'other' tab. 

These two screen grabs show my grade in green by name and then in groups in grey.

When I am conferring - it looks like this. The coloured tabs across the top are the different subject areas. 

These show the detail I have entered for each child or group. 

Then there are links to the Cafe Menus


As we share kids for reading and maths - on Friday when I get my notes from the other three teachers it only takes me about 20 minutes to enter them in. When parents ask questions, I can answer straight away. When I write reports - it is easy as my goals are already done and the strategies are already done. 

This post is not sanctioned by the 'two sisters' nor do I receive any compensation for writing it.  I just love using it.

  1. Hi Paula,

    As I was driving home from school this afternoon I was thinking about how to keep track of all of those notes and checklists that we keep for reporting and tracking. I had planned to email you to ask if you had any tips... I guess this post answers my questions! Thanks for sharing, I'm going to check it out.
