"I was working for a small school, so when it came to grading, I only graded 15 students. The teacher usually handed me the forms and it was with numbers 1-4
Well....now I am working at a big private school. I got hired at the middle of the second trimester, so we decided to only grade the last trimester. My question is: When it comes to grading a Spanish class is there any grading rubric that you follow? Do you make your own? I want to send a little note home that says something about their learning since I began there. The grades that I teach are K-8. ¡Gracias!"

Familia Botero:I also teach k-8. For every unit i create goals. These are the "notes" i share w parents. For grading purposes, every class period students get a participation grade. They also get grades in completing projects. I create worksheets we use in class. Some of our worksheets can be colored so i assign it as "homewor ( at the lower levels) so they understand spanish js a "real" class.
Upper levels have projects and activities that allow me to grade their work.
My principal and I agreed that participation on the lower levels would be the biggest chunk of their grade. Hope this helps. Reply to my comment if you want any more details

Patty: Following!

Jenn:This is a great question. We don't have anything on our report card at all yet, so are really looking for the same info.What about aligning them to "can do statements"?

Heidi : We are using "can do" statements, but our computerized report card morphs those into speaking, listening, reading, and writing. I use a common curriculum and assessments and attach a cover letter to each test I send home with general info about the unit.

Christine: I do 50% homework/class participation and 50% tests/quizzes/projects for grades 5-8. For grades 3 & 4 I assign points to most work done in class because I don't give homework or tests. Thankfully I don't have to give grades to the little ones at all.

Simone : The "can do" type statements that come with the authentic assessment charts in the Sonrisas Spanish school books are great.
