Thank you for purchasing this journal. I have used this for a few years now. I take long construction paper and glue the first cover in front and staple the other pages inside. The children draw their self-portrait on the cover and write their name. Each month I pick a date for assessing their name, oral dictation/early spelling, and drawings. I have a different topic or question each month. Or you can leave it open for the child to do his/her own. I love this because it progress monitor all year in one place. It is amazing to see all the improvement at the end of the year! Enjoy!
When you download it .. it looks aligned, the thumbnails looks like it is not, but be assure it aligned. I just checked!
