Reflection: Performance Tasks Star Student - Section 3: Activity


The end product can be copied and used as a documentation of writing and drawing skills for the beginning of the year.  I love to have samples of writing from different times of the year to show student improvement.  I used to be afraid to send them back to their seats to add more details, but now I am not afraid.  The more I prompt and the more I expect from them, the more they learn and produce.  If you do this activity, be prepared for a lot of prompting and scribbling.  It takes a long time to get my ELL students to understand what is expected.  I am always surprised at the poor fine motor skills some children come to school with.  This type of activity is nonthreatening and they are so eager to please.  Patience and multiple opportunities to write bring about improvement.
