Practicum Students Rubric Bulletin Boards

 My practicum students from MTSU are required to create a bulletin board as part of their placement.  I had shared with them that I was wanting to make very graphic..easy to follow rubrics for my wall so students could do self assessment.  Here are the results.
Over all this was a beautiful display.  The only thing I would have changed was having consistant colors for the YES! Kind of.. & Needs More Time(YES! all blue..etc)

This was created for 2nd grade, but I feel could be used through 4th grade.  


  1. I love this idea of having a bulletin board in your room that they can refer to their rubric on. I do something similar to that with posters that visually demonstrate what a complete work of art would look like as compared to a rushed and unfinished work of art. I wish I had more wall/bulletin board space in my classroom that I could post something like that. I'll have to see what I can come up with! You can see what I did for my kids visual aide here:

    Thanks for all the interesting posts you've done!

  2. Great idea! The only thing I would change is the sad faces-- an administrator of mine pointed out the negative connotations that those can have with young kids.

    Here is what I now use instead:

  3. Hey Princess Artypants...I understand what you are saying. However...this is not what I'm putting on their is for self assessment. The idea of using the sad face is because of Kindergarten & my ELL population being able to understand symbols easier.
