It's almost the end of the year (I'm going until June 5 now because of all the snow days... BOO!) and so you might want to take a peek at some CCSS assessment helpers to help target teaching and learning for the last few weeks...
"Snapshots!" are super quick assessments, only a half page each, and can give you an instant read on how your kiddos are doing on individual standards. Perfect for finishing up report cards, last minute interventions, or even to put together for summer practice! They are available for 1st grade reading, math, and grammar. And 2nd/3rd grade reading and grammar, 2nd grade math, and 3rd grade math!
You can even find a sample pack for each grade level so you can test out a few!
Send home some "Thought"marks for summer reading... these are bookmarks with comprehension activities for the back of each one! Each bookmark explains the strategy on the front and comes with two different comprehension activities you can print on the back! This is one of my FAVORITE things I implemented in my room this year!
Maybe you want some quick, quick, quick and fun, fun, fun awards for the end of the year. These are easy to fill out and allow you to simply type in students' names, print, and watch the smiles flow!
Want to get a jump-start on new classroom things for next school year?
How about quick and easy holiday/theme decor with printable bunting banners? I love quickly hanging these for each holiday! They're available in loads of themes too... the theme banners all include a customizable PPT file too!
Or... implement clubs in your room next year! We have a "100 Club" for reading and a "Homework Club" too! My kiddos love being in the clubs!
Make yourself a daily CCSS ELA review (available for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades!) for next year with "100 Days to CCSS Success"!
Increase school-to-home communication with these easy to use monthly newsletters! 20 to choose from with two styles for each month!
Or review standards in an interactive way with classroom/hallway hunts. These are perfect for getting practice on a skill while up and moving!
Those are just a few of my favorites... happy SALE-a-brating!
