Product Description
Literacy Portfolio for Grade 4 and 5 students.

**Contains a version with Canadian spellings and another with American spellings.
 
This tool is ready to use, just photocopy and go!
 
A literacy portfolio will help students to get more out of their reading by reflecting on the purpose and value of reading while seeing their progress over the year. The portfolio will give students a place to keep a record of their favourite books and favourite pieces of writing that they created over the year. This way they can track their interests and really see their progress from September to June.
 
This portfolio primarily focusses on reading and writing. However, it also includes some oral language and media literacy reflection questions, to help students recognize that these are interrelated skills. I ask my students to complete the set of pages at the end of each month, and it became the base of their literacy portfolio. In addition to completing the sheets, I also have the students pick 1 piece of writing that they feel is their personal best and showed new learning for them from that month and include it in their portfolio.

What is included?
There is a cover page for students to decorate and make their own.
Each month (September to June) has two pages, a page which
is primarily dedicated to reading and a page which is primarily
dedicated to writing. At the end of the portfolio there is a
reading log for students to record books as they read them.
