goalprintablesMy pal, Andrew Lummis, pointed me to a collection of printable goal sheets that parents and teachers can use with students. Easily adapted to your own needs or useful on their own, they help foster discussion in the areas of behaviour, listening, participation, homework and general “How Was Your Day” types of reflection.

Helpful Templates for Assessment

assessmentMy pal, Andrew Lummis, found this collection of RealClassroomIdeas.com. I’ve linked to the Helpful Templates for Assessment page which has several interesting pieces. I was pleased to rediscover the old 101 Positive Phrases of Praise document – a photocopy of which, in my paper days, I kept in my daytimer for years. (Now it can go in my DropBox.) Don’t forget to look along the left sidebar – this site is a treasure trove.
