Each month of the school year have the children in your class draw a picture of themselves. Then add a simple sentence! "I see new friends." or "Look at me!" At the end of the school year make a cover with a school picture on it and give to parents to show how much their child has grown.
I have used so many ideas from your website ... I'm so glad that your are now selling your packages on TPT! The Portfolio Pack will be a great monthly activity and a lovely momento to send home at the end of the year!
