Something new that I added to it this year was having them really internalize the actual SKILL that was learned and focus less on the activity that got them there.
For example, A student may put "We practiced division" under the math heading. This is an action that they did this week, however, I'm now asking students to add to this and break it down to show the Skill/Focused Objective that goes with that. "We practiced dividing 2 digit numbers by 4 digit numbers, I learned that you want to use an educated guess when deciding how many times the divisor can go into the divined."
"We learned about the Explorers"
"We learned the five reasons why the early explorers came to the New World, they included gold, a water route to Asia, spreading of Christianity, new lands/products, and adventure."
What do you do to help your kids reflect on the learning that happened through the week, month, day?
