This is a system I use in my classroom to check for understanding throughout a lesson or unit. My students put their heads down and close their eyes so they feel comfortable. They hold up the amount of fingers based on their understanding. We discuss this poster in the beginning of the year so they are familiar with it as we do it all year long.
4 – I understand and I could teach it to my parents!
3 – I understand it!
2 – I think I get it, but I need more practice.
1 – I don’t get it. I need help.
