Journal Rubrics and a....GIVEAWAY

Sunday, September 30, 2012
I am trying SOOOO hard to get around to check journals between reading groups...and believe me with 29 kids it's no easy task.  However I really want to give them immediate, semi quick feedback.  I created a freebie that you can use if you'd like - it looks something like this.  Click first picture below for link.

Here is a picture of it in action stapled to one of my firsties journal pages.

Can you tell I'm in a total hurry between groups - done quickly and moving onto the next one. :o)
I hope it's helpful to you and you are able to use it as well.  Also I have to tell you about an amazing giveaway that I'm lucky enough to be a part of with other very talented TPTers.

Head on over to Creation Castle and enter the rafflecopter to win BIG!
**TPT** is not allowing uploads at the moment -- so visit back and click on the first picture above for the link for the freebie tomorrow.   { all loaded now :o) }
Goodnight all! { well not really - LOL just moving onto laundry and Amazing Race }

  4. Thank you so much for sharing these-hard to find ready-made rubrics for the little ones. It would be very easy for them to understand. :)


  5. I made something like this that prints on sticker labels, and I cannot get over how much easier it makes things! Definitely try that out if the stapling gets to be a pain :)

  6. Hi jenny
    Thanks for the tip...I should know better. When I taught 3rd I had pre made rubrics for writing on labels that I pulled off and stuck right on their work for grading. Thanks for the reminder. :oD

  7. Great rubric! Thanks so much! I'm thrilled to be your newest follower!!
