This packet can be used to keep track of student growth throughout the school year. Each student completes the packet 4 times a year. The beginning, 1st Trimester, 2nd Trimester, and End of Year. You can adjust the time frame to work for you. I kept each of the packets in individual folders and adding to it as the year progressed. This was very handy to show parents at conference time and at the end of the year, the students took them home. You will be amazed at the growth your students make every time you update their packets. Tailor the packet to fit your needs - use one, some or all.
