Here are some of the assessments that I have used in my teaching:
Here is an example of a pamphlet one of my grade 2 students created for a guided reading lesson.
Here is health poster that all my grade K-2 students created for a unit.
- KWL charts
Here is an example of a KWL chart that did for the beginning of a unit in health.
- Writing Prompts
- Thumbs up, down, sideways
- Exit Slips
- Email me
Here is a math quiz that I created for a math group.
Over the first year of my teaching, I created a bunch of different math worksheets for my students as an extra supplement. Here are some examples:
- Research Projects (on Chromebooks and paper)
- Circle Talks
- Graffiti Wall
- Cut and Paste
Here is just one example of a cut and glue that we have done. This unit was about “Needs and Wants,” although we have done many other cut and glue activities in phonics as well.
Here is an example of a collage that the students created.
- building structures
- making models
- anecdotal records
Here are some anecdotal records I use for math, guided reading, and writing.
The one formative assessment that I found the students responded really well to was the “thumbs up, down and sideways.” The students really enjoyed that I genuinely wanted to know if they liked an activity and what we could do differently to make it even better. I was in a split class of grades 3,4, and 5, but I also had the opportunity to work with grades k-2 as well. I found lot’s of these assessments worked well with the younger and older students.
