Made It Monday: Response Feedback Board


I'm linking up with Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics for Made It Monday!

I just have one project to show for this Made It Monday, but I am so very excited to use it this school year! I had originally pinned this student feedback board from Cheryl's Classroom Tips. Then, I saw how The Teaching Thief adapted this board and included a theme. Well, I am amping up my fish theme this school year, so of course I made my feedback board with fish!

First, I di-cut the fish for the board. I decided to do 28 instead of 24 because you never know what could happen in these years of budget cuts. Better to have more fish than not enough!


Printed off numbers and cut them into squares for the fish. Then, I added the numbers and glued everything down!

Finished product!!!!!! Off to the laminator!!!


My plan is to attach this to the wall along with a holder for sticky notes for the students to write their responses. I will either verbally give prompts (i.e., "What is the theme of this story?") or post it near the board (i.e., "When do you use multiplication in everyday life?"). This gives me a quick way to get feedback from my students and know who is understanding concepts in the classroom.

  1. That's a really cute idea. I might have to 'borrow' it for my room.

    Geez, this whole Monday-made-it thing makes me feel both energized and panicked! How will I ever get all these new projects done and the ones I already have planned?!

    1. Borrow away! That's what great teachers do :)

      I know what you mean about summer closing out and school closing in on us! I need to get in the classroom!

  2. I love the idea of using a shape for each student's section. I liked the idea of having a designated spot for each student to put his or her post-it, but the simple grid was a little boring. I am now going to make one for my football themed classroom. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. I love this idea! It turned out so cute. I've always thought I'd love doing a beach/fish theme.

    1. My last name used to be Fisher, so I've always had a fondness for fish. I am excited to get more of a fish/ocean theme in my classroom!
