Managing and Keeping Good Reading and Writing Conference Notes

I have struggled and continue to struggle with keeping good reading and writing conference notes. Does anybody have any templates, examples or suggestions for making it work and be useful? I mean how can I use them to guide my instruction? How can I keep them short and they still be useful? Do you use short hand? I find that I tend to write too much. I need a smaller space I think.

What a great idea to organize all these notes. I keep mine in a book but I would love some way to coordinate them and use some kind of chart to show similar problems, needs, growth, etc. I hope someone comes up with an idea. Another teacher told me she had found something on Busy Teacher's Cafe site but she didn't /wouldn't share it with me.

at one time, i did pretty well with a sticky label system. i got those sheets of mini address labels and printed on them:
kid's name or number and a space for the date
strength:
worked on:
future topics:
every time i met with someone in writing, however brief, i would write a strength i noticed in the writing - convention, craft, something positive; whatever we worked on - whether it was finding sight words on the word wall, editing, or developing an appropriate ending, etc.; and a future topic of something i see needs work. just a few words for each because there is not much room on that sticky note.
every few days, i would fill up a whole page of labels and attach them to a sheet in each kids' file. but before i would put them up, i made lists of kids with similar future topics. i picked out the ones i noticed the most to do whole group lessons, and then i pulled small groups if i had 2-6 kids who needed work on another.
hope this helps someone!
