Self reflection is a great way for students to think about their learning, their evidence and how they feel about what they are working on. Reflection can occur at any time of the lesson and it is important that students (and teachers) are practicing it throughout the day. Using the traffic light reflection model is a great way for students to develop this type of thinking.
This model works the same as a traffic light with 3 colours - green, orange and red.
Green - "I get it"
Orange - "I'm getting there"
Red - "I need some help!"
I have used this traffic light model before with my students, with circle cut outs that they place in their books to reflect on how they are feeling. I also have a stamp which they can tick to show their reflection under their learning.
