Digital Portfolio Monthly Templates for Google Drive™
Perfect for Use at Student-Led Conferences!
Digital Portfolios are an amazing way to have your students collect and build a body of evidence of learning. Each month, there are 6 templates. At the beginning of the month, students set a monthly goal. During the month, they collect and add work samples to demonstrate progress on that goal as well as other learning. They also add photos of what they are doing in the classroom. At the end of the month, they reflect on 3 things they are proud of for the month, highlight and reflect on at least 1 important piece of work, rate themselves on behavior and work habits, and reflect on how they did with their goal. I include detailed directions for how to get started and examples of completed templates.
