How I keep track of kids progress. just a summary of what is in their portfolio but kept digitally so we always have a copy and know what we are working on and where a child is. The hard copy documents with story/artwork are contained in portfolio.
Is it just me, or do children seem to notice everything? They notice the beauty of the leaves blowing in the trees on a windy day. They notice the fans spinning overhead in church, and pause in wonder at.
