Marzano loves his scales, and so do we! This scale is bright and easy to read. The circles match a rectangle of the same color. This rectangle is to help you and your kids keep track of where they belong on the scale. Simply attach numbers to magnets (as shown in the preview download from my classroom) and have students slide their magnets to the correct scale for them! If you choose to not use the magnet method, you could hang the scale from ribbon and have students attach clips or clothespins instead. :)
The scale reads as follows:
Level 4 - Yes! I completely understand and can even teach it to others.
Level 3 - I understand and can work independently without making mistakes.
Level 2 - I am beginning to understand and can keep working with help.
Level 1 - I am very confused. I need help, please!
This can be easily adapted to any learning goal to write alongside the scale. Enjoy!
