I am already thinking about next school year! I have recently started to look at the Common Core Standards for 6th grade language arts. We will be using the new standards starting next year, so I wanted to familiarize myself with them. I decided to make some bright posters to hang in my classroom to display the standards as they are being covered. I also wanted to create some handouts for myself and my students. I created a checklist for myself, so I can keep track of the standards as we go through them. I also made two sets of handouts for my students. One is a sheet they can use to record the dates we worked on the standards, as well as the portfolio page number where you can find samples of their work related to that standard, and the other sheet is a reflection tool students can use to rate how confident they feel about each standard. I think the students' portfolios would be another great resources to use for student-led parent-teacher conferences. I created a couple of cute portfolio covers, and I am looking forward to implementing these news materials in my classroom next year!
