I have created a number of self-assessments that work very well in the primary classroom. They are designed so that students can answer how they are doing with a smiley face, so-so face, or a sad face.
I have found that when students are reflective on their own learning, they begin to take ownership over their learning and act more responsibly.
These are great tools that can be used throughout the year, and become excellent conversation pieces during parent-teacher conferences, as well as portfolio data.
- two stars and a wish
- reading level progress chart (3 different designs)
- self-assessment highlighting the 6 Ontario learning skills
- "how am I doing?" checklist for levels 1-4 or with happy, so-so, and sad faces + "this is what my teacher says" area for you to add your own assessment
- "This is how I feel about..." self-assessment for the teacher to get a better understanding of her students
- blank sheets for "how am I doing?"and "this is how I feel about..." so that you can assess the needs of your class.
- parent letter explaining the self-assessments
