I missed you!

Wow, this week has been a blur! I can't believe it's Wednesday already. I had Monday off for President's Day. But of course, that meant that my son got sick on Sunday so we went to the doctor on Monday. He wasn't too bad off, just conjunctivitis...emphasis on junk. The doctor said he had to stay out of school yesterday. So, today was the "Monday" of our week.

The day was going interestingly enough (especially since being out Monday and Tuesday had me all out of whack and I forgot about a conference I had this morning! I've never ever done that!!). Of course right after specials and snack, the day care called and I had to figure out getting a sub in the middle of the day and rescheduling the conferences that I had for this afternoon.

Here's hoping the rest of the week goes smoother!

I just wanted to share a quick idea that I saw on Pinterest and have applied in my classroom. The charts below are two different ways that my students will be learning on how to evaluate their own work. The hardest part of making these was to figure out what I considered to be "4 Star Kindergarten" work. I did two different charts: one for writing and one for worksheet activities.

My students seem to have two main habits. Habit number one, when it comes to writing, they do great pictures but forget about the writing. Habit number two, they do the work well on worksheet activities but then totally scurry through the coloring part of the sheet.

I'm hoping that these two habits will be fixed at least a little bit. It's a goal of mine to have the students being able to do a little bit of self-evaluating. Next year I might work towards them setting their own goals too.

How do your students set goals or self-evaluate?
