Marzano-Based Smart Board Assessment

The following is an evaluation scale that I created based off of Marzano’s educational objectives. Students usede this scale to guide their effort and performance. They rated themselves by dragging their name to the four, three, two, or one section on the smart board to indicate their perceived ability to perform the goal.

The scale is as follows:

Vanilla Ice Cream Cone (1): I didn’t do what my teacher asked.

Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream Cone (2): I finished my work but I forgot several things.

Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream Cone with Sprinkles (3): I did my best. I’m proud of my work!

Triple Dip Ice Cream Cone with a Cherry on Top (4): I did more than my Teacher asked!

Glogster

A Glogster is a digital, interactive poster. The Common Core standards that go with this Glogster’s curriculum are:RF.K.3- Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words. RF.K.3.A- Demonstrate basic knowledge of one-to-one letter-sound correspondences by producing the primary sound or many of the most frequent sounds for each consonant. RF.K.3.B.- Associate the long and short sounds with the common spellings (graphemes) for the five major vowels. This can be used as a lesson, in centers, and is a great way to use individualized instruction based on a student’s needs and interests.

Smore Classroom Newsletter

Smore is a website that allows the user to create an online, interactive flyer. For my purpose, it was used to create a classroom newsletter that parents can receive via e-mail or that can be printed out. The central theme of this newsletter is to inform the parents of the events going on in the student’s classroom and what they can do to help their students be successful. The purpose is to make sure that parents are not in the dark about any aspect of their child’s education. I want them to be very informed and I think this newsletter fulfills my goal of making sure parents are informed about what is going on in the classroom and how they can be a part of their child’s education.

“I am Rosa Parks” Capzles Digital Timeline

Capzles is a website that allows the user to create an interactive timeline using audio, video, pictures, and text. The Common Core standard this Capzles lesson goes with is standard RI.3.3 that says, “Describe the relationship between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in technical procedures in a text, using language that pertains to time, sequence, and cause/effect.” This timeline goes along with the book, “I am Rosa Parks” by Brad Meltzer and describes the relationship between the historical events in the book and uses language that pertains to time, sequence, and cause/effect. It puts the events in order on a timeline. This lesson provides a good example of a timeline based on an informational text with historical events. Students will create their own timeline based on an informational text with historical events on their own and this will help them get started and show them how to do it as well as use language that pertains to time, sequence, and cause/effect. The rubric that assessed my performance with scores included can be viewed here: Capzles Digital Timeline Rubric.
