Students are beginning to use checklists in order to self assess their progress. For projects like our Second grade treehouses, students receive a checklist sticker. Students enjoy attaching the checklist and checking off the criteria as they complete them. Sometimes students notice things like "my drawing is colored a little messy in the corner," so they go back and fix it. We love to see students self assessing in this way, and when all the criteria is completed, the three checks represent 3/3 for the assignment "grade."
