One of the big things my district if focused on right now is student self assessment. I created this simple way for students to quickly assess how they are doing with any area of study or assignment. I have laminated the main posters on cute yellow paper and have them hanging on my board. Then, any time my kids do an assignment, they draw a smiley face on it to let me know how they felt about their work. It works great for me because I can see if they are correct in how they feel they are doing.
This file also includes some small cut outs that could be glued onto assignments, and some big pictures that could be made into puppets for instant response.
