Monday Made it #1

Hi all! Happy 4th of July! I hope you are having weather where you can enjoy the sunshine and fireworks with family and friends. I am linking up today with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for my first Monday Made It!

I have been busy working on things for next year. I cannot believe I start school a month from today, I still have a lot of things to get done. Summer is flying by!

I am really wanting to incorporate more emojis into my classroom this coming year, and I have been pondering different ways to do that. Something finally came to me today!  I have made an Emoji Reflection pack that I plan on using next school year. 

I have made an end of the week and daily reflection sheet. I really want my students to work on being reflective and owning their learning. I plan on using these at the end of the week right around dismissal time. They are quick and easy, but there is more than just circling an emoji.

Thank goodness for Instagram teacher friends who helped me with this one. I have made it where students have to write why they chose the emoji they did, that way I can track what they are still confused with or need help with, or what they are feeling confident in so I can celebrate with them!

These are not just for older kids, I have made it for younger students as well. The only difference between them are one asks the students to write and explain why they chose what they chose, while the other just has them circle the emoji saying how they felt about the day or the week.

I have made these in color and black and white for the teachers who don't have access to a color printer or have limited amounts they can print.

I cannot wait to use these as a check in with my students at the end of every week!

If you are interested in checking out the Emoji Reflections head on over to my TeachersPayTeachers store and get it for yourself!
