I post a different picture each week and students write one asking and one telling sentence about the picture. The goal is to make them “sparkle” by adding details and checking for capitalization, punctuation, and spelling. Students write the sentence in pencil first and after proofreading are allowed to make it “sparkle” by tracing over it with the gel and glitter pens.
The Pick Me! App is the perfect tool for teachers searching for a way to track formative assessment. Pick Me! will randomly pull a students name for you to call on and after they answer the question, you record whether or not it was correct using the thumbs up or incorrect using thumbs down. The data is saved and ready to export to your email account at the end of class. $1.99.
