### "Show Me Your Thinking!" - Self-Monitoring Strategy for Comprehension

"Show Me Your Thinking" is the perfect self-monitoring strategy for primary-level students (K-2) to mark and code their understanding of a text. Using only two symbols, this strategy allows students to SHOW their comprehension.

Once the students learn how to code, they have the option of writing a happy/sad face in the margin of their paper, flipping a happy/sad face card, or placing a happy/sad face sticky note right on the page!

This product includes:

- Directions

- Photos

- 1 Poster

- 4 Sets of Self-Monitoring Cards (different styles!)

- 2 Sets of Student Thinkmarks (different styles!)

I made these recording sheets to go with a simple, yet engaging game that I use in the classroom.

Please visit my blog for game pictures, instructions, and a similar set of winter-themed sheets:

The game on my blog that goes with these sheets addresses the following Common Core Math Standards for Kindergarten and first grade:

K.CC.4. Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.

When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.

K.CC.5. Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1–20, count out that many objects.

K.OA.1. Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings1, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.

K.OA.2. Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.

K.OA.4. For any number from 1 to 9, find the number that makes 10 when added to the given number, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record the answer with a drawing or equation.

1.OA.4.Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8. Add and subtract within 20.
