On the last day of Pre-K, my son came home and proudly showed me “a book all about him”. It was a student portfolio documenting his learning with math, reading, writing, geography, art, and so much more. My favorite part were the pictures of him throughout the school year. My goodness how much he had grown and changed! I had already forgotten. I could see why he treasured it and was so excited to show me. He had learned so much in Pre-K and this portfolio gave us a small glimpse of his hardwork.
As I flipped through it the 100th time, I realized I was a fool for never doing this for any of my students or families. I knew I needed to make it effortless, while still being valuable.
So here it is… 11 pages of what you’ve always needed to document student learning for the whole year!!! And not by just using paper pencil assessments! Student portfolios allow you to collect students’ projects and assignments, while also documenting their learning through photographs. The best part is how students are actively involved in their progress and learning. This is a great tool for teacher and student lead conferences any time of the year.
