PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students in my class use this checklist weekly to self-assess themselves in the areas which are identified on the Ontario Report Card for elementary students. Each of the headings for Learning Skills and Work Habits have been broken down into kid friendly language ( I teach grade 6 gifted but this could be modified for younger/older students) After students self-assess they look back over the checklist and identify three areas for improvement. They are asked on page 3 to set goals for improvement and describe a brief plan of action for each area. (I also ask the students to COPY these goals onto the Weekly Goals section of their student planner for the upcoming week.) Page 4 of the chekclist is used the following Friday for students to reflect on how well they achieved their goals and what they learned about themselves through the process.

A great product-clear, concise, and organized. I was just about to start working on my Progress Reports and I read your blog entry about this product, so I raced over to see it! Thanks so much!
On  October 15, 2013Teachingisagift answered:
Thanks so much! I wish I could make it fancier, but really making it too cute doesn't seem to suit the purpose! Hopefully you can use, or adapt it to fit your needs. Have a great week and thanks for the feedback!

This is a great tool to use with students. It is always important to clarify vocabulary and having a large ELL population makes it imperative.
Thank you.
On  October 12, 2013Teachingisagift answered:
Thank you for such a constructive comment. I agree with you about the ELL population. I think ALL students need to understand what they are being assessed on and how they can improve. I hope you find this helpful with your students. Like I mentioned in the comment below, you could easily adapt it by removing some of the bullets and changing it by month or term, etc. I teach gifted grade 6 so my students had a pretty good handle on the language we used to create this checklist. Thanks again for the feedback and have a happy Thanksgiving!

Love, love, love it! Would love to try to adapt for primary too
On  October 12, 2013Teachingisagift answered:
I think you could adapt it for primary quite easily. Perhaps take out some of the bullets and make it only one or two per heading, per term. You could focus on teaching those while you are using the checklist. You could use happy faces, or thumbs up, thumbs down. I think it would work really well. If I had time to do it, I would make it for you NOW but I'm heading out of town for the weekend for the first time in 8 years. Hope you have a great weekend too!

You are such a great person for sharing this! Thanks so much.
On  October 11, 2013Teachingisagift answered:
How nice of you to say so! I tried to make it pretty but that just wouldn't work! I decided to keep it straight forward and easy to use. My students really have "internalized" what is expected of them each year. I hope you find it useful with your own class! Have a very happy thanksgiving!

You are wonderful for posting this. I really appreciate it. Thank you.

Awwww how nice of you to say! I have been using this for the past two years and it really helps my students focus on areas for improvement. It's also nice to have something to discuss with parents at conferences. Nothing fancy...but it works! I appreciate you taking the time to leave me feedback. Have a fantastic weekend!

I am so glad I found this. I can't wait to use this with my students. I'm looking forward to seeing how they rate themselves compared to how I rate them. (should be interesting). Thanks so much for sharing!
On  August 24, 2013Teachingisagift answered:
Why thank you for downloading and for leaving me feedback! I really do appreciate it. I found that using this checklist really made my students understand what they were supposed to be demonstrating, and helped them set goals toward improvement in the areas of greatest need. It looks a little daunting but once they had done them a few times, (we did it every Friday) They really got the hang of it!

After reading the comments I got excited about editing the document to fit my situation, and forgot that I cannot edit PDF's. I am in Texas, and although I don't have to grade my students on these traits, I want to use the idea of self-rating and planning to improve to help my eighth graders take responsibility for their own learning before they go off to high school. I'll use this activity as my inspiration! Thank you for sharing your idea, especially after you tested it for us!
On  December 20, 2013Teachingisagift answered:
Joan,
I am on holiday right now, but once school starts up again I would more than happy to send you the doc version of this checklist so you CAN edit it. I have no problem with sharing it. I hate it when I need to change something and I have to remake it. If you drop me an email at teachingisgift@outlook.com after January 6th, I will send you a copy!
Happy Holidays!

Thank you! My grade seven gifted class (also in Ontario) definitely needs this. The trick is always finding time.

I am always excited when I see another teacher of gifted SarahQuilts! Thank you for leaving feedback. I hope that this checklist helps your students as much as it has helped mine. Have a fantastic Thanksgiving!
