This is a booklet you photocopy and staple at the beginning of the year. You have children perform a few beginning of year assessments, then draw a self portrait every month and write their name or a sentence you require, then perform end of year assessments. At the end of the year, you have a lovely end of year gift for the childrens' families AND a record of progress throughout the year. It is so fun to look back and compare--the children even enjoy doing so! There are also spots to include a picture of the child at the beginning of their kindergarten year and then a spot for a picture of them at the end of the year. This packet includes options for PreK, kindergarten and 1st grade and you can mix and match to make it "just right" for your students and your needs as a teacher.
