Wild About Quality
This week we unpacked the term "quality" and what that looks like as a kindergartener. We matched up my writing samples with what would be green, expected work and then two other examples of not so "green" work. The students told me what made the work "quality" and we used their words to make our rubric. This type of transparency holds kiddos accountable it also gives them a measure for their own work. Rather than me constantly asking them to "add more detail", now we have a specific talking point. Students can also use the quality work board to see if their work is what is expected as described by them. Students also created their own green work that is now on the board. The work is exceptional -- and just by making the expectations clear and student created!
