How do your students know what you expect if you do not tell them. As a class, we created this Coloring Rubric anchor chart to show how they need to color.
When we fist begin illustrating, drawing, and dictating I have the students label their pictures. I did not want them to be able to label the parts of something (for example, if they drew a girl I, did not want them to label her head, arm, feet, etc... I wanted them to label the parts of the picture. I drew this picture and laminated it, then using post it notes, we labeled the picture.
I love having Anchor Charts for the students to have to refer back.
