No..I'm not talking about the missed rapture! The end of school is near!!!! We have a week & a half to go. This week I'm handing back student art work and giving them a Finish Up Day. I allow them time to finish work & I do a portfolio review with each child. I had posted this lesson(see above pics) a couple weeks ago...but this was the 1st class that did the project. I had them work in colored pencil(but switched to marker for the other classes). These 4 stood out from the rest. I hope that the end of the year is going well for you all!!!
In my denial of school ending for my first graders and preschooler I realized that I will miss reading this blog during the summer too...as I expect that at least your content will change since you won't have any new student material. But looking forward to the other endeavors of the summer!!!ReplyDelete

I love the idea of a portfolio review!! How do you find the time for this?ReplyDelete
Erin, I just plan the last class of the nine weeks will be finish up day/portfolio review day. I get all the art work past back & students get busy working. Then I start calling one student up at a time. I don't do a long review..but ask them what their fav. is..what one do they feel was their worst and why. Then I talk to them about their work and what I see is good..and what needs some work(this year it seems like coloring..great drawings..coloring not so great).ReplyDelete
Love this -- I plan to "borrow" it for my future teaching practice!ReplyDelete
