Reflection: Accountability Two Poems, One Theme Formative - Section 3: Fast Finishers and Closure


It was great to conference with kids after the formative today. I had the opportunity to speak 1:1 with 11 students and clear up misconceptions or ask why there were missing components of notebooks. I kept a list of the students I met with and tomorrow morning I will take a look at the rest of the class notebooks during their morning routine. Even at the end of February I need to keep my kids accountable for work. We've had a heck of a snow year with 8 days off so far and it gets hard to keep the kids consistent when we haven't had a full week of school since December. When they know I'm checking, they tend to put forth more effort. With 33 kids in a classroom, I can't monitor everyone's notebook at the exact same time during workstations. I'm pulling a small group, so I have to work in different ways to hold them accountable. This time just works best for me.
