Students strive to "do well" but often don't understand what an "A" or "85%" grade means. I use this poster to talk with the students at the beginning of the year about what grades mean and how we will use this poster to help us reflect on the assessment and know what our next steps will be. My kiddos in 3rd grade haven't received actual grades before, so this is a very new concept for them. This poster, along with conversations throughout the year, helps them understand what the letter and percentage mean AND what it means for them as a student, including what next steps they should take.
I also print out mini versions and tape it to the students' graded papers folders, so the parents can see this and have a better understanding too of what their children's grades mean.
This product is fully editable, since grade numbers, letters, and colors vary school-to-school.
