Hi! I’m joining up with my friend Tara for her famous linky…
Ok, so I don’t have a ton of things made (have you seen how many amazing things Tara can crank out?!) but I do have something new that I would like to share with you!
I’ve been working on having (sounds awkward, too tired to edit) more rubrics and examples of work displayed on our bulletin board. My students have rubrics in their binders…but I really think they are more powerful when displayed in a place where we can reference them frequently.
So I’ve started with a little Making the Grade sign for this area, our district’s grading scale, and grading codes that correlate directly to our report cards (I’m using these codes on my students’ papers…for instance Reader’s Responses get both a reading grade and a writing grade and are coded R and W…not my original idea, I learned about it online at a wonderful blog I cannot find again!).
I’m going to add work samples next, such as a math homework paper filled out completely, displaying all calculations and work.
It’s one of those things I feel like I should have done a long time ago, but I just never thought of having it on display!
So, I do have the sign to share, in case you’d like to use it for your own bulletin board. Just click on the image below to download…
Do you keep a display like this? Or do you have a different way of sharing rubrics and grading with your students?
