I have been using these at conferencing time for a few years now. Not only does it allow the students to reflect on their learning and behavior, but parents love them! They are a great “take away” for conferencing.
The flipbook includes…
A Cover (Tailored to grades three through five)
A page for students to record the grades that they are earning, and their favorite and least favorite subjects (and why)
A page for learning behaviors (based on the Habits of Mind) where students can reflect on how they are doing. I am always amazed at how honest most students are on this one!
Social reflections (recess, friends, etc.)
Goals (academic, behavior, and other)
Students complete in school, cutting on the dashed lines to create the tabbed flipbook. I have found it allows a fantastic dialogue during parent teacher conferences. Anything to make conferencing less stressful is a win in my book!
