Growth stars

Inside my classroom - growth stars July 2018

Every time I give a test or quiz, I look to see whose grades have improved the most from the last test or quiz. Those kids’ names go on my “Growth Stars” board. It doesn’t matter what score they started with; all that matters is if they’ve improved. It’s nice to see a smile on those kids’ faces when they see their names on the board.
