Using Flip Cards to Check for Student Understanding

Using Flip Cards to Check for Student Understanding

As teachers, a big part of our job is to ensure that students are understanding whatever concept we're teaching.

I've created a simple flip card resource that I think can help you create a classroom routine that will help you and your students both. 

These cards are two sided. On one side, you can ask a multiple choice question to check for student understanding. They just hold up the right answer.

On the other side, you can have students reflect and choose how they think they are understanding the current lesson. This allows both you and your students to reflect on their learning. 

The options on this side are: 

  • I could explain this to someone else. 
  • I can do this on my own. 
  • I might need help to do this. 
  • I don't know how to do this.

I love these little flip cards, because they make a routine out of checking for understanding and establish that it is okay to "not know how to do this." They allow me to quickly reflect on how a lesson is going and they give my students some space to reflect as well. 

They are simple to create. All you need are binder rings, a few sheets of cardstock, plus scissors and a hole punch. 

To get this free resource, just head on over to my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

If you have any questions about this resource, or if you'd like me to make a similar resource, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks,

Kayla
