Reflection: Checks for Understanding The Language of Images - Section 5: Students Take a Turn


This student shares her imaging ideas as she draws. Feedback on her thoughts as she is creating the images is a formative assessment. As kids work, walk around and ask them what they are drawing and why they are making those images. Kids have great ideas and are very creative, but should be able to share how they got the ideas. If you hear they got the ideas from background knowledge, the picture, and words from the story, then they are using the strategy correctly. If they are drawing a picture of what happened to them, it might be time to follow up and remind them to use the text and illustrations to image, not to create a picture of their own life.
