It's important for kids to be able to reflect on the progress they've made-to date in class: have they reached the goals they've set for themselves or is there a mid-course correction that needs to take place? These 2-sided reflection pages are easy-to-use for just that purpose.
For my current third graders, I fill in student scores on the top portion (although older kids can do this themselves). Then I gather groups of students to my guided reading table for a discussion based on 3 categories: scores went up, scores went down, scores stayed the same. Meeting in groups with common experiences makes it easy to lead the students through answering the questions on the front of the reflection pages.
We discuss how if we can pinpoint one area to work on, we can continue our upward movement (or begin to move in the right direction if we've slipped up). Students are often surprised to see that they can make a difference in their overall scores by targeting one area per trimester. It feels attainable to them.
I send this sheet home at Parent-Teacher-Student Conferences. The back of the page shows families some ideas of what they can do to help their child make continued progress towards their goals. Students circle the area they most need to focus on and highlight concepts that they're still uncertain about.
I've found these reflection pages to be really helpful and directive, sparking fantastic conversations about increasing focus in class, or reading from different genres, etc. The students become much more self-aware and seek to reach their goals. I think you'll love these!
