One of my favorite things to do with my students, is to sit down for a conference. It's a chance to get to know your students really well and get an insight into who they are as a writer, as well as, what they really need to work on to make them a better writer. However, conferences are also super hard to plan for and they take a lot of prep work. This bundle comes with all of the Kindergarten convention standards from TC, including:
I used all I knew about words and chunks of words to help me spell.
I spelled all the word wall words right and used the word wall to help me spell others.
I ended sentences with punctuation.
I used a capital letter for names.
I used commas in dates.
I used commas in lists.
I spelled all the word wall words right.
I used the word wall to help me spell other words.
This bundle comes with illustrated cards for each standard that you can use to help your students become independent in monitoring their own progress with conventions. I have created the cards in several formats to fit your classroom, including:
Option 1: 3.5" x 2" inch cards. They fit perfectly in business card sheet protectors, for
easy use, and the ability to interchange goals. Or you could laminate them
and put them on a binder ring of goals.
Option 2: 7" x 5" card - I personally used this size and would put them in zipper pockets
inside my students writing folders. These zipper pockets also contained items
such as personal pencils, spacers, punctuation pops, editing pens, and/or dry
erase markers, just to name a few. I would put one goal at a time to help the
student focus and master one skill before moving on to the next.
Option 3: A single sheet containing all of the convention standards. This can be used
to self assess, set goals, or blown up to become an anchor chart.
There is also a recording sheet included that will help you track your conferences. It could also be used by students to set goals.
