Happy Monday! I am slowly but surely making my way through my to-do list. I am super excited to have finished my classroom signs for student self-assessment!
This year we have moved to a Marzano scale of 1,2,3,4 for our report cards. A part of the teacher evaluation tool our district uses looks at students ability to self-assess. At first I was like "What the heck are my firsties suppose to do, write their own test or make up an assignment?? Then grade it themselves?" That is just crazy!
Well I got to thinking about the 1,2,3,4 scale we are using and BAM! I figured I could use the numbers to assess their understanding of learning throughout the day. I taught them the what each of the numbers represent. Now I simply ask them "On a scale of 1-4, what is your understanding?" Then the most amazing thing happens! 18 hands pop up quietly with a number and I can quickly scan to see how they think they are doing.
I put together these cute posters for a visual for my kiddos. (Honestly, it is a reminder for me to have them check for understanding! I also figure it will look good to have posted in my room!)
here to hop over to my TpT store and grab them!
Hope you (and I) have a great week!!!
