*****This product is a FREE SAMPLE. It contains comments for the Belonging and Contributing frame. Please click here for a GROWING BUNDLE of ALL FOUR FRAMES.
This product was created to help teachers compose report card comments for Junior and Senior Kindergarten classes in Ontario. The comments were created based on the most recent Kindergarten Curriculum document, which was implemented in September 2016. The comments can be applied to both Initial Observations reports (released to parents in the fall) and Kindergarten Communication of Learning reports (issued at the end of the second and third reporting periods).
Frames are divided into three categories: Key Learning, Growth in Learning, and Next Steps in Learning. These categories are outlined in the templates provided in Growing Success: The Kindergarten Addendum.
PLEASE NOTE that these comments are to be used as a skeleton for your report card comments. Final comments should include specific evidence of growth in learning for evaluation for your students. In other words, comments should be supported by your own observations of each student. As stated in Growing Success: The Kindergarten Addendum, “Evidence of growth in learning for evaluation is collected over time using pedagogical documentation. It is expected that multiple sources of evidence will be used in order to increase the reliability and validity of the evaluation of learning.”
