Picasa Albums!

After an inspiring conversation with the amazing Dorothy Burt, I have created Picasa albums to go with my sentences rubric.
Using the rubric, I plan to conference with the children about their work and agree on a year level their work is sitting at. Once they have decided, the students will then take a screenshot of their work and email it to the correlating Picasa album. 
This will create a bank of exemplars with which we can refer to throughout the year. It also makes their learning visible and the students accountable for what they are producing.
Over the following week we will hopefully have some work to share so watch this space!

  1. I enjoyed coming into your class this week and seeing how your inquiry is moving into practice Amanda. You were reflecting on a student's writing with the whole class against your rubric and locating what level it sat. There were little conversations all over the mat about how some of the sentences were longer and more detailed, or how there were only full stops, no sentences with explanations, speech or questions. They were pretty tough critics.
    So good to hear students confidently reflecting on writing and discussing what learning steps were next.
