Sticky Notes – What Do You Do With All Those Pieces of Paper?

January 18, 2014 No Comments

I love to have my students write down their thoughts on Post-it notes when they are reading independently. I gain so much insight into their thinking, their misconceptions, and level of comprehending the text. However, I didn’t have a plan for organizing their notes in a way that would be accessible to me for assessment purposes. Having the notes stuffed inside their book didn’t provide me with a bigger picture of what strategies they were using, overusing, or not using at all. As they say, necessity is the mother of invention. With laptop in hand, I began to create pages to hold the students’ notes. I created different categories so the notes could be sorted by the type of comment. My students will have a pocket folder with the metal prongs to hold the pages. I also created some assessment forms.
