Second semester is the time when we see our kids turn into true writers! They have been working diligently in their journals for months, and though their progress seems obvious, the kids themselves are often unaware of their growth. This self-assessment hopes to change that! As kids are given the opportunity to assess their own writing skills, this simple check-list style assessment helps them see how much progress they have made, as well as set a clear plan for their future improvement. This activity pairs well with a mini-lesson on the growth mindset and goal setting!
Note: This assessment has now been updated to include color coordinated assessments to help young kids understand the grid-style checklist!
