Huband Park Elementary
School District #71
5120 Mottishaw Road
Courtenay, BC

Student: Paige (Mock Report Card) Grade: 4
Term: 3 Teachers: Gagn, Nye, Grant
Learner Voice:
Last term, Paige set goals to work on Math facts with her family and Read Just Right books
to help with her fluency.
This term, Paige has played math games with her peers during goal setting and worked hard
to complete a chapter book during silent reading. She is trying to read independently at home
and tries to use fraction words.
Teacher Voice:
Paiges participation in class has supported our learning community through her caring manner
and positive attitude. She communicates in a friendly way with both her teachers and
classmates when she contributes and shares ideas. Paige participates in Physical Education
with sportsmanship and fairness. Paige has worked hard in the Fraction and Decimal unit with
her work completed. She has worked in math partnerships as a team player, in which she
contributed to the task-at-hand with confidence in her answers. She has developed an I can
attitude in answering class directed questions and seeking support with independent work.
Paige has been innovative and daring in her writing, which has shown growth in her vocabulary.
She is willing to take risks and ask for support in creating ideas around her thoughts. Paige is
persistent in completing a chapter book and very proud of her accomplishments. Her hard
work in reading Just Right books has reached a higher level of self-confidence. This shows
through her willingness to read in groups or aloud to the class.

Next Steps:
Math: continue on math facts by skip counting to strengthen her multiplication skills. This can
be done through dice and card games at home.
Reading: for continued improvement in Paiges reading, she needs to read her Just Right
books and any other reading materials that interest her. Paige should continue with
strategies in decoding words, such as looking for word clues within the text or breaking the
word into phonetic chunks.

Student: Mattheus (Mock Report Card) Grade: 4
Term: 3 Teachers: Gagn, Nye, Grant
Huband Park Elementary
School District #71
5120 Mottishaw Road
Courtenay, BC



Learner Voice:
Last term Mattheus set goals to master the Multiplication and Division facts. Also, he set the
goal to Pacing and Polishing his work.
Mattheus has worked hard on his math goals and has shown an improvement in his
multiplication knowledge. He has shown authentic evidence in his number facts to real world
numbers. Mattheus has worked well with peer assessment to improve his assignments and to
be more polished.
Teacher Voice:
Mattheus is able to contribute to our learning community, through adding many worldly facts
to classroom discussions and is very good at accessing his prior knowledge and skills on a wide
range of topics. He believes in getting the tasks complete and has a very friendly attitude
towards his peers. He enjoys working on group tasks and brings many strengths to the group
with his creative outlooks, as in a recent Readers Theatre group activity. Mattheus is working
on supported writing strategies for pacing and polishing his work to a level of taking it
beyond. Mattheus has been very keen in applying fractions to hands-on activities and can
fluently explain the mathematical equations in the activity. In Physical Education, Mattheus
applied himself to learning new racquet techniques and participated fairly in activities.
Mattheus was very keen in working with his group during science experiments and was a team
player in supporting his peers from beginning to the end of the project. Mattheus is always
eager to learn new lessons in class.
Next Steps:
Math: Mattheus can continue furthering his math facts through reading statistical materials
and playing number games, as he likes to find comparisons between academic work and the
real world.
Work Habits: Mattheus works very well independently and needs to launch a criterion that
can support the pacing and polishing of his assignments in order move his completed work
beyond.

Huband Park Elementary
School District #71
5120 Mottishaw Road
Courtenay, BC



Learner Voice:
Last term, Emmetts goals were Editing his writing and taking the time to find an interest in
writing. He was also wanting to establish a criteria to Pacing and Polishing his work in order to
move beyond.
In this term, Emmett has produced some creative poems that have been self-assessed and
supported through his desk group readings.

Teacher Voice:
Emmetts smiling face and fair-minded character is always a pleasure to see throughout the
day in our learning community. He is starting to show a leadership amongst his peers with
worldly discussions and honest support. This term with his academics, Emmett is confidently
applying himself to move beyond his current level of work habits. Emmett is very good at
orally articulating his stories and is working hard at putting his words into his writing; as his
poetry has been well polished and creatively displayed. Emmett has been very motivated and
authentic in his reciting of poetry and Readers Theatre pieces. In Physical Education, Emmett
shows a willingness to participate and play fair. In our Science Unit with Light experiments,
Emmett took on a caring leadership role and supported others in order to get the task
complete from beginning to end. Emmetts thoughtful presence in the class is a strong asset
to our learning environment.
Next Steps:
Emmett is a strong class reader and needs to find the I Can in sharing his own writings. His
work is becoming polished and written with care, in which this shows that he can move his
tasks beyond. Emmett needs to applying self-assessment strategies to his work and perhaps
use more peer-assessment criteria to build his confidence.
