Dear Classroom (or Homeroom) Teachers,
Usually grading week is one of the most stressful times of the year. After all, you must calculate grades accurately in addition to leaving personal comments. The numbers usually fly by, but the comments can take you forever. What kind of comments, and how should you word these comments? This is an extremely important thing to consider. These comments will be the precursor to any further contact you have with parents/guardians. The comments should help students and parents understand how they can improve upon their past work. It's important that personal comments are not belittling the student, but instead addressing any concerns along with encouragement.
These comments are written in full paragraph form and include a positive opening statement, goals in academic or social, next steps and motivational closing remark. They are divided into three parts (in general): High Achiever, Average and Struggling Students. You can plug the comments into your comment bank or cut and paste directly on to a report card. You might continue to use it, year after year, as your most valuable, practical and you could mix-match the comments.
★ This product includes comments for the term 1, semester 1 (term 2), term 3 and the end of the school year.
