How it works:
In my classroom I have a portfolio for each child in my class. I keep it all in a
standard folder with the child’s name on the front and all of the information tucked away inside. It’s a great tool for parent-teacher conferences and then it’s also a great keepsake for the kids to have at the end of the year.
I teach at a year-round pre-school. So I have 12 months with each of my children, which is why I have Anecdotes for 12 months. I have also created a 9-month Anecdotal for those of you who work the typical “school year.”
How to use this resource:
Print the Developmental Checklist & Assessment for your age group.
The “Pre-K Assessment” and “Assessment Notes” pages can be printed back to back to make it a bit easier. I usually write an overview of what the child knows and goals for the child on the Assessment Notes page.
Print the Assessment Tool for your age group in COLOR. I put them in page protectors and usually use a wet-erase marker on it while assessing the children if there is something that they don’t recognize. That way I can easily transfer it to their Pre-K Assessment for their portfolio.
I keep all of my Anecdotal Notes pages on a clipboard with the Class Roster and the checklist page on the top with each month. This way I can make sure that I am observing and documenting at LEAST once per month for each child. I do the same thing for the name writing throughout the year page.
I have provided a checklist for the portfolio I do as well as a blank one for you to edit however you please. Hope this is helpful!
