{FREE} Student Reflection Tool: My Week in REARVIEW

Today I'm sharing an older product - but it's got a new look :)

Each Friday I have the students fill out their “rearview mirror” with pictures and key words/vocabulary from different topics we've learned about that week. 
It serves several purposes:
1. It is a wonderful way for me to assess what they’re retaining and which activities they are really enjoying
2. It lets parents know what we've been doing in class and serves as a talking point on Friday nights
This is motivating for me, the students, and the parents
A win-win-win!
3. It perfectly complements my travel-themed classroom :)
I have included two templates:
you can do this as a weekly or a monthly activity

Once the mirrors are filled out, you can do a number of things with them:
1. Send them home each week
2. Collect them in a folder called “My YEAR in Rearview” to send home at the end of the year as a reminder of all the students have learned
3. Put them up on a bulletin board
4. Keep them in student portfolios
This could also be a good review for a particular subject/topic. 
For example, I've used it at the end of a social studies chapter: “1920s in Rearview”
 I also like to use it during the first week of school to have the students describe their summers. They write a short story to go along with their Rearview Mirror:
 This is a FREEBIE in my TPT store
