I am so excited to be linking up with my fabulous 2nd grade bloggy friends! Even though I'm moving to third, 2nd will always have a big place in my heart. Today we are bringing you a fabulous blog hop!
Our goal with this hop is to share 2 ideas to help you make a smooth transition back to school and 1 wish that we want to improve on.
The area that I want to improve on is assessment. I have let a lot of my assessment data come from tests. This year, I want to focus on building relationships with students and having that personal interaction to help in assessment. To do this, I will be utilizing a conferring binder.
I picked up this awesome binder from Target and I love it because it can bend backwards like a notebook!
As a lefty, I have such a hard time writing in binders so I didn't want to have an excuse for not using my conferring binder. I snagged some pocket dividers and numbered the tabs. This way I can reuse them for years to come.
I also made this set of conferring pages. I've included a mix of pages to record each student's progress as well as labels to use during small group work. My plan is to copy the same forms on colored paper for different subjects (math, reading, and writing)
