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! :)

Melissa -
Is this something the parents will also get to see, or just something the students will be aware of in class?

This will be primarily used in class, but also available at conferences for parents to see.
