Or a thought bubble and a speech bubble shape printed on to paper/Thought bubble stickers.
The bubbles can be used as a useful AfL/reflection tool.
The speech bubble is where
thye record what they’re most confident in, or what they feel has gone well. The thought bubble is used for their ‘Even Better If’
The shapes should be different!
bubble is a more of a definitive shape: Students should state what they feel
confident in and the thought bubble is for thinking about where to head next or
what could be improved upon.
when you want to use this reflection tool:
At the start of the lesson to gauge confidence/prior
knowledge/things they’re confident with/things they want to work on that lesson
In the middle as a mini review
At the end to measure
progress and next steps.
What to do:
Learning board I have two models of what this reflection tool looks like with
sentence starters in for the pupils to use.
I also have a bunch of thought and
speech bubbles printed out and cut up so pupils can write on them and stick
them in their books. Alternatively they can do it straight into their books but
I like to give them the slip of paper sometimes to make it more official and so
it stands out more!
you want pupils to write in each bubble depending on context.
Scaffold/offer a framework with sentence
starters to shape their reflections
