School is about to begin!

It's almost time for school to begin!!  We will be "back to the grind" this coming Tuesday!  I am really looking forward to the upcoming year!  During our PD this past week, we talked a lot about the Common Core and how Howell Schools will be transitioning from the state GLCEs to the Common Core standards.  One of the ideas that we talked a lot about is how important it is for students to be a part of their learning and assessment.  Our presenter showed some examples of ideas that other teachers have used to involve students in this way.  I created a resource that I will be using in my classroom this year for all subjects and many different learning goals.  I think this resource will really help students take a look at their progress and see how their efforts are helping accomplish their goals.

If you would like a copy of this resource, visit my Teachers pay Teachers store! :)
