As our first graders learn about parts of speech, they do a deep dive into adjectives. As a formative assessment, they showed their current level of understanding using Google Drawings. This activity involved labeling with pre-given adjectives (yellow boxes) as well as creating their own adjectives (red boxes) to describe the picture chosen. Not only could we assess their knowledge, but we also observed their growth mindset as they engaged with some pretty intense tech skills for first grades (right click, sending objects to the back, etc).
These kids totally persevered and were able to demonstrate new levels of understanding during this quick digital check in. Based on this data, we know where to head next!
