the instruction planning for each child.
The assessment is
done by direct observation by the teacher according with child development
scales; inclusive of the following areas:
Observations of the child's dramatic play.
Self esteem as observed in playing habits.
Observations of the child's interactions with other children.
Shares and respects the rights of others.
Tape recordings of a child telling a story.
Drawing, cutting and pasting.
Teacher observation of how the child responds to stories.
Photographs of a child on a climber.
Photographs of block structures.
Notes on games the child has successfully mastered.
Portfolio items should
be dated and labeled and will be shared with parents at conferences
to illustrate the child's progress in the program.
