This is an excellent activity to help your students see how much the have grown! This lesson includes one double-sided worksheet for students to fill out at the beginning and the end of the year. Past classes have been amazed to see how little of the worksheet they were able to fill out compared to completing it at the end of the year.
I spent two years teaching first grade at a private school. Currently, I teach intervention programs for grades 1, 3, and 5. With both of these jobs, I have had limited curriculum and have created most of my own lessons.
