My favorite product in my store…Preschool &Kindergarten Portfolio & Skills Assessments made EASY! It was A TON of work but totally worth it. It turned out AMAZING if I do say so myself! Here it is. I should call this my SUMMER MADE IT because it has taken me all summer (and many summers before it)! EVERYTHING you need is included (except for the binders).
Need to track and assess your student’s skills and keep student portfolios in an easy and manageable way? This is it! Just print, assess, track on their individual page, and file! This will be my twelfth year teaching which is crazy by itself and I have done student portfolios each year. Parents love them and I love them but they are a TON of WORK! After trying many different ways of doing them here is what I have found works best and is the easiest for me.
Assessment Binder Sections with Activity Pages & Charts (skills assessed): Identifies Letters (uppercase & lowercase), Identifies Letter Sounds, Rhyming, Writing Samples, Sight Words, Journals, Opposites, Positional Words, Identifies Numerals, Identifies Shapes (2D & 3D), Counting (rote and one to one correspondence), More/Less, Sorting, Patterns, Identifies Colors, Name Samples, Pencil Grasp, Drawing Shapes, Writing Letters, Writing Numbers, Cutting (lines, shapes), and Self Portraits.
Teacher Instructions & Ideas: Each section has a teacher tips page that explains the assessment options, tips, items needed, and a photo to ensure it will go smoothly for you in your classroom.
Student Activity Pages: I created activity pages that I have used in the past and have worked well for my students. If you have different work samples or artifacts, absolutely add them to the portfolio to show a student growth and skill! Here are a few examples (choice 3 & 4 in the photo above)
Charts: Some teacher like to use charts to assess so I also included them as an assessment choice in this product! I put all my charts into a binder! Here are a few examples (choice 1 & 2 in the photo above)
Rubrics: SOCIAL EMOTIONAL, GROSS MOTOR, & FINE MOTOR rubrics have been added! Super duper excited about this. Just observe and check the boxes!
And now all about the student portfolios!
Portfolios are a great tool to use at parent teacher conferences. You can show the families where the student began, where they are now, and where they are going. It is also a fabulous keepsake to send home at the end of the year to show how much the student has grown!
Making the Binders: I broke the portfolios up into sections. You pick what sections you want to include! Then I created dividers for each section. There are simple dividers or the dividers with development levels. I print my dividers into colored card stock. This way the sections stand out more and are easier to find. For example, last year all the student portfolio dividers were copied on yellow card stock.
Covers: Tons of cover choices! Super cute right! You can print them on colored card stock or my favorite is to have the students color them. Or pick the editable ones. Your choice!
Did I mention I added EDITABLE binder covers, dividers, and more for you too?
Dividers: Two sets of dividers are included. The first set is just simple, general dividers (Math, Writing, Fine Motor). The second set of dividers are more specific and it only has the name of the section.
And drumroll, please…. EDITABLE observation pages! Just type, insert the photo, and print!
I think this might be my favorite part….Individual Student Skill Sheets wth Matching Progress Reports (2 pages, 1 page if you copy it front to back) – You can track each students’ individual skill level ALL year long on just two pages!
The individual student sheets and portfolio activity pages/charts have the letters, numbers, and shapes in the same order. And yes there are EDITABLE ones for you too!
You can assess students progress as much or as little as you want… you decide what works for you in your classroom! I asses students the first month of school then again each quarter (every 2/3 months).
Now, do you WANT it ALL? EVERYTHING in the Portfolio pack and EVERYTHING in the Assessment pack is in the Assessment & Portfolio Bundle! Trust me when I say I have spent months creating, updating, and researching this product.
I have been using this in my classroom for over 8 years making adjustments and updates based on how it works in my classroom, current research, and your feedback.
Just BUY IT so you have more time with your students, for yourself, and with your family! I have done all the work for you!
