One of the goals of using success criteria (we can / I can statements) in the classroom is for students to learn how to independently assess “work” and determine how to make it better. Today the grade 3’s worked with their writing partners to assess their drafts of their interesting paragraphs and to come up with a plan on how to “bump up their work”. They did an amazing job working together and providing each other with great feedback that will improve their writing. They also assessed their independent reading this afternoon. Some examples are shown below. Your child will bring his/her assessment home for you review and sign.
