This is a great way to file/collect information needed for portfolios. It keeps everything organized and together. It also helps keep you focused on what data sample product you need to collect for each Early Learning Guideline. That is how I use it but it can be modified to help you with what you need to accomplish in your grade level. I love having all the complete forms filed together so I can easily take them home. I used to store them in portfolios but now I keep them all together until progress reports are finished. During conferences I file this paperwork in each portfolio.
