Description of Idea

Have students find a space by themselves in the gym so they can’t see each others papers. Give an assessment page and writing utensil to each student. You may have to write the student’s name on the paper if they can’t write their own names yet. Ask them to write their names and grade only to begin. Once they do this, ask them to sit criss-cross if they were ready for the next direction. I took my students through the assessment one question at a time. After each question, ask them to sit criss cross when they ar ready for the next direction. They did so easily.
