I have been reading a lot about the GROWTH mindset. It is a concept I really want to encourage in my students. So I decided to create learning scales that reflect the growth mindset. The scales are created to go in an interactive math notebook at the beginning of each math unit. On the scales, there are boxes next to the scale criteria. Every few days, I have my students reflect on their learning. As they check off new skills, they shade the scale vertically to show their growth as a learner.
11 units included:
Represent and Interpret Data
Two Dimensional Shapes
Multiplication/Division Facts and Strategies
Patterns and Two-Step Problems
Time, Length, Liquid Volume and Mass
Area and Perimeter
