Engage students in answering that pesky question, "What did you learn in school today?"
Neuroscience shows that students who reflect on and recall their learning over intervals are more likely to remember what they've learned.
Encourage your students to reflect on what they've learned that day.
Encourage your students to build their vocabulary by engaging with words they used in class that day.
Encourage students to wonder and ask questions.
Encourage students to engage with you as a teacher and share their learning and their lives.
This Nightly Reflection Sheet may be used in conjunction with my Daily Reflection Sheet.
I use this reflection sheet on a daily basis in my lessons:
How Do Plants Grow?
How Does Energy Move Through Ecosystems?
