After a movie, field trip, or presentation, I always want my students to reflect on what they learned. Also, after a break or holiday, I want my students to reflect on what they did or how they celebrated. These sheets have been a great way for me to have the students show me that they were listening or paying attention, and at the same time practice their paragraph writing skills.
I usually print one of these sheets after an activity, holiday, or break and have the students do a reflection for me. I have included some templates of the times I choose to use these reflection tools, but you can easily copy and paste the template onto blank pages and change the titles to activities and holidays that your school celebrates.
I have included:
I print a copy for each student. After students write their paragraph (or for younger students it could even be write a sentence or two), then I have them draw and color a picture, and color in the title and the number of stars they would rate the event. Afterwards, they turn it it. Often times, I collect and save these sheets in their writing portfolio as memory pages. The line size can be increased for younger students.
You can also use these docs as hyper docs. Copy and paste the one template that you want the students to use. Delete the lines for the written reflection part. Share the document with your students. They can double click on the stars to color them and on the photo to insert a google drawing. Then they can click under the written reflection area and type a paragraph. They can save it in their own google drive as part of a portfolio, or print it and still compile it into a hard copy portfolio.
I use these reflection sheets for listening and writing grades. You are always welcome to text me any questions!
