Grading. It can be KILLER!
BUT... I use "Snapshots" each week to assess my students on a grammar concept and a comprehension skill... and I'm so happy to report that I can grade a class set of "Snapshots" in under 5 minutes... and, since each "Snapshot" is targeted to one Common Core standard, I can find out exactly who is successful and who needs more support so I can provide intervention right away!
So... here's the stack and the timer at zero...
And, here's the graded stack and the timer at 4 minutes and 21 seconds!
I teach ELA to two sections of third graders so, if it wasn't for these assessments, I think I'd spend every weekend grading! I also love that students can complete these in about 4 minutes and 21 seconds too, so, even though we do two every week, they don't feel "assessed to death".
Since today is Thursday, it's a THREE fer THURSDAY!!! I couldn't decide on which three "Snapshots" to place on sale at 20% off, so I'm sort of cheating... ALL "Snapshots" products are on sale today but I'm justifying it by saying that since they are available for three different grade-levels, I'm still staying with the rules of the three fer!
