I cannot believe that I found EXACTLY what I needed so desperately in order to complete the new Commom Core requirements of posting a specific learning rubric for each lesson taught in my classroom. I am getting "observed" by my administrator next week so it was a BIG relief to find these "kid-friendly" rubrics perfectly aligned to the new first grade standards! WOW - they are very well worded and colorful too! WELL-WORTH ONLY $4.00!!! I think if you offered a preview more teachers could appreciate the OUTSTANDING QUALITY OF ALL OF THESE RUBRICS! I took a chance anyway and feel like I GOT LUCKY!Every first grade teacher should have your rubrics, especially if they want to be evaluated as"INNOVATIVE" - LOL!
On  February 7, 2013Tamara Russell answered:
I can't tell you how much your thoughtful feedback means to me. :) I created these rubrics with exactly that scenario in mind. This was my first rubric, and I honestly wasn't sure how they would do. I've since done several others and it seems that other teachers are getting use out of them too. I'd completely forgotten that I'd not done a more formal preview of this particular piece, so, I thank you for letting me know! :) You are too kind! :) I hope your observation goes well! :) I'm sure you'll be fantastic! :) Again...thank you so much for your feedback! :)

I really love the rubric/scales you provided. They are not written exactly as we are told to write our Rubrics--but they are 95% on target! I have looked at so many rubrics and scales and yours are the best I have seen! I love the details you have used and obviously you are a great teacher! Thank you so much for providing these and helping others!
On  October 25, 2012Tamara Russell answered:
Wow! Thanks so much for that! :) I am so glad that you like them! :) If there is a way that I can help you get it to 100% on target...let me know. :) I can certainly edit them for you, so that it can be what you need it to, if at all possible. :) I've done it in the past for others who've asked...you never know...state to state...county to county, even, how this particular component is supposed to play out in a school. Don't hesitate to email me at happytchr35@gmail.com if I could be of further assistance. Thanks so much for the feedback. :)

Hmm...I have had lots of downloads for this and haven't gotten this feedback before...I wonder what happened? Could it be that you need an updated version of Adobe? In any event...I would be more than happy to send you the file to your personal email. :) So sorry for the inconvenience. :/ Can you tell me what email I should send it to?
Thanks! :)

Hi Tamara,

Do you happen to have an common core standard scales and what not for 4th grade? I was looking but I haven't come across one yet.
Thanks!

On  January 3, 2013Tamara Russell answered:
No, unfortunately not yet. I'm in the process of finishing up the kindergarten and second grade math. I'll probably not have something like that until the fall. They take quite a bit of time to make. :/ Thanks so much for asking though! :)

Hi Tamara
ahhhh great teaching minds ... I was hoping and thinking about something like this for kindergarten - non fiction ccwriting and ccmath specifically. Do you have one or have you done one? I was hoping to make it for the k set but I want it to be in a very rebus style so the children can use it. I have referred this one of yours to all my 1st grade teacher friends I hope they buy it and use it WTG!
Thanks
Stephanie

I have a kindergarten ela set out...I was thinking about doing a math set over Christmas...There should be a preview...so, you can see the direction I was going. A rebus style...you mean with pictures?? That sounds like it could be really great idea! :) Thanks so much for the referral! I've gotten such nice feedback on these, and they are really enhancing my classroom instruction. It's so great to be on here and get a chance to connect with like-minded teachers on things like this. Good luck on your rubrics. Send me a note when they are done! Would love to check out your preview !:) Sounds like a neat idea! :)
