My name is Laisha Moreno and I am currently majoring in Bilingual Elementary Education at the university. I am a little nervous when I get a job in the future in an elementary school how I will organize my lesson plans for science and especially how I am going to test the comprehension of my future students. I want to major in 4th grade, so how do you test your students' understanding on summative assessments and formative assessments? How could I do it in a way that is creative but also ensures the understanding and engagement of my students? I don't want to just give quizzes, but offer something fun but useful to my students. I would really appreciate your advice.
A fun a way is doing Exit Slips.These can be fun and not daunting, for students or teacher. Give students a question to answer that targets the big idea of the lesson, and have them write a sentence or two. Stand by the door and collect them as they leave. Sit at your desk and thumb through them all, making three stacks: they get it, kind of get it, and don't get it all. The size of the stacks will tell you what to do next.
