Another round of reports over and done with.
One of the easiest parts of the reports to write this session was our unit of inquiry.
In the past I’d be pouring over rubrics, student work and tearing my brain for memories of classroom conversations.
This year I used the data the children had gathered through doodlecasting and they were the easiest comments to write.
No longer was I just using artefacts of what the kids have ‘done’ but what the kids think about what they’ve created. Hearing the children explain in their own words about the concepts gave me a really clear picture in my head of the child when writing their comments.
I wish I had a way to link the comments to the evidence of the children’s learning directly into the reports to add an extra dimension to my observations.
