Students in 3rd grade rounded up their September projects by mixing a “catch up” day with a rubric/critique day. We went through and experienced self-grading for the first time and even did a brief “show what you know”. This was my first time doing this with the elementary level and while it was successful, there are many things I intend to change so anticipate more information later.
Anyways, we finished our projects. Half of them are hanging in one of the 3rd grade hallways and the other half will be on their way to John Deere Financial momentarily (our financial sponsor). These turned out great – and students recognize the warm colors and cool colors with a much easier association like the sun and the ground. Check it out.
