This is a great classroom management resource / display which was created to help children think about how much effort they are putting into their learning. They must move their name-tag on the thermometer according to how much effort they are putting in. It fits in well with Growth Mindset.
It can be used in a few ways.
Self Reflection: At the end of or during a lesson the children place their name-tag onto the effortometer depending on how much effort they think they are putting in.
Teachers Assessment: During the lesson the teacher can move names around depending on how they are working. I sometimes give a reward token (see our store) if a child reaches the top of the scale.
This has made a huge difference in my class as children are starting to become aware of what they are capable of. I hope it does the same for you!
