Students had this at their desks for a beginning of the class warm-up when a new skill and/or subject matter was being introduced. At the beginning of the year, you can use this tool for one subject and add this for each subject as weeks go on so that students are not overwhelmed in having to fill these out for each subject.
Since the standard and the skill would be listed on a bulletin board for each subject, students would pick what they know already, and what they want to learn. At the end of learning a certain skill and/or topic, students will fill out the bottom of the paper.
This paper was then sent home for an instant communication with parents.
Students were expected to write in complete sentences, and explain why they did not know something, why they wanted to know, and how they learned the new topic and/or skill.
Based on what they wanted to know, when I collected these, I was able to plan on subject materials to present, and automatically had quiz questions from what they wanted to learn.
