In this 49 page document, you'll receive the ELA standards with Common Core "I can" statements in an easy to use cut and paste format. Each page includes cut and paste stickers both students and teachers can use to assess work. The students will easily understand the kid friendly "I can" statements and enjoy the simple to use rubrics with a 1, 2, 3 smiley face scoring system. The teachers will appreciate all the stickers being labeled with CCSS ELA standards at the top and a tab label that can be used to organize individual portfolios for students.
Using portfolios is a fantastic way to keep track of each student's progress on the standards and are an invaluable tool for reporting purposes and for parent - teacher conferences.
Instructions for My Classroom Portfolios
I use 2 inch binders with a 9 page tab divider for my students' portfolios. After students have completed a CCSS skill, I give them a sticker to glue on their work. The rubric can be filled out and used in a variety of ways. One way is for students to use them for self assessment after the first time they try something new. Another use is for teachers to use them in small groups for student-teacher conference sessions to review student needs or as a final assessment tool for the teacher grade book. After the stickers have been glued on an assessment paper, the students store their work in their binders. Each sticker has a tab number on the top to help the students stay organized.
I sort my students' portfolio tabs as follows:
Tab 1 is for recording scores. (Please see my ELA common core standards grade book form found at my Harris Helpers store.) Tab 2 is for storing current work in progress. Tab 3 is for storing all Foundational Skills standards. Tab 4 is for storing all Literature standards. Tab 5 is for storing all Informational Text standards. Tab 6 is for storing all Writing standards. Tab 7 is for storing all Speaking and Listening standards. Tab 8 is for storing all Language standards. Tab 9 is for storing all Vocabulary standards.
(Note - You will find two codes on most stickers. The other codes are what my system uses.)
