I wanted to show an example of our notebooks/portfolios. Throughout the year we worked hard on these. This is my 2nd grade boy. This completed notebook is what I will put in the file for his 2nd grade year.
The slides show each subject, separated by the yellow folder tabs. We labeled the tabs and throughout the school year we added important paperwork. Important work to me is reviews, quizzes, tests, difficult concepts, journal entries, manipulatives that were made, etc. We also journaled about our Wild + Free nature days, field trips, theological concepts learned through Bible time, holiday units, and a list of books read or read alouds.
I love this little book! And I love to see how my sons handwriting has progressed throughout this year! He’s proud of this book and likes to show it off to dad. I think this would have been much easier to do with a 3 ring binder 🤦🏼♀️ lesson learned for next year!
Do your children do notebooks? How are they done? I like to see different (or better!) ideas!
