My Project

My students are all unique. They have so much to share every single day. Every one of them needs something different and it can be daunting to keep track of how each of them is doing at all times. It's important for me to know the things they are thinking and feeling. It's from this information that I plan my instruction and how I will respond to their needs. Please help me provide materials for them to give me the feedback that I need to provide social, emotional, and academic support.

Students use sticky notes each day to check in.

They let me know how they're feeling and what's on their minds. They also use sticky notes to mark their thinking in text leaving notes and flagging important ideas. Throughout the day, students use white boards and dry erase markers to draw and model their thinking. It's easy for me to see who is getting concepts and who needs more help this way. With these materials, students have what they need to show what they know.

Grades 3-5

This project will reach 15 students.
