These innovative responsive classroom and growth-mindset friendly weekly behavior reflection sheets offer an alternative to the old school behavior calendars, which place all the responsibility of evaluating student behavior on the teacher's shoulders. These, instead, are designed to be completed by the students with minimal whole-group teacher guidance. Relieve yourself of behavior calendars that reduce a students' day to a color, letter or number, and use the reflection sheets to guide students in a non-shaming, reflective exercise in accountability.
Three differentiated versions of the reflection sheets are included, and are intended for Kindergarten, First, and Second through Fourth grades. Each version contains a design that can be used throughout the entire year for those looking to simplify, as well as 12 pages with artwork specific to a monthly, seasonally appropriate theme, for those looking for a little extra dose of cute.
- The Kindergarten version has simple language and pictorial guidance, and asks students to evaluate their progress on being STAR students. (self-control, trying their best (effort), attitude and respect). Students also choose an area of growth that they are most proud of for the week.
- The 1st grade version is similar to Kindergarten, with slightly more sophisticated language and expanded options for choosing the area of growth they are most proud of for the week.
- The 2nd - 4th grade version asks students to evaluate their effort and attitude as well as explain how they have shown growth in one academic or character building area each day. They are also asked to reflect on what they have learned from a mistake each week. This important element encourages students to develop a growth mindset, embrace effort and progress over perfection, and truly value the learning potential of making, and learning from, mistakes
Half-sheet versions of the 2nd-4th grade sheets are included for those on a paper budget.
The reflection sheets are pdf files, and are not editable. Copy two-sided to use two sheets of paper, per student, per month. The sheets are not dated for any one school year, allowing the same file to be used for a lifetime.
The reflection sheets can be used on their own, but also coordinate beautifully with my monthly calendars and reading logs, and can be purchased in a bundle with these other items.
